Call for abstracts: NTNU Sustainability Science Conference

Added: 21 January 2017. Closing date: 01 March 2017


There is a call for abstracts for presentations at the international NTNU Sustainability Science Conference (Trondheim, Norway, 18-20 October 2017).

Reaching the goals set by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development depends on the holistic and cross-disciplinary consideration of all dimensions of sustainable development, across economic, environmental and social systems. Research must reflect awareness and incorporation of the interactions, feedbacks and overlaps between dimensions, and the human and natural systems they represent. NTNU SSC 2017 is therefore designed to include research across multiple disciplines and essential to the implementation of sustainability strategies. The theme of the 2017 Conference is, “Transitions to sustainable systems.”

Research must be scientifically based and reflect integrated consideration of both human and natural systems. Contributions that help build the foundation for practical innovation and implementation and influential decision-making are especially welcomed.

We welcome abstracts that examine aspects of sustainability science along four tracks:

A. Institutions, governance and ethics

B. Smart and sustainable city services

C. Biodiversity and ecosystem services

D. Business models for sustainability
