Invitation to participate in developing Deep Transitions in The Netherlands Research Program and Seminar Series

The UU-TUe-WUR Strategic Alliance has undertaken a project to develop a research program on Deep Transitions, focusing on boosting the transition towards a sustainable and inclusive society, based on a long-term analysis of past, present and future explorations. Together with their societal partners from a range of private and public sector organisations, the organisers would like to implement this program in Spring 2022, and also to invite you to contribute to the development of the research program.

Seminars programme

The organisers have scheduled several online seminars of around 90 minutes in length to explore various relevant topics and receive your inputs and feedback; all seminars will be conducted in English.
