Sustainability is key to Nottingham Trent University’s mission. Sustainable Futures, one of its five strategic research themes, is hosting a virtual conference on 16 December 2020 to explore how to develop and enhance our work in this area. The event is aimed at all academic staff and doctoral candidates interested in engaging with the theme.
The event will examine the challenges and opportunities academics currently face regarding research collaboration and income generation. In particular, we will consider the effect of the pandemic both in terms of how and what we research with new emerging issues such as the potential for a sustainable recovery, the resilience of communities, and how Sustainable Futures could contribute to these research agendas.
The aim of the morning is to build the Sustainable Futures community, welcoming new and existing staff into the discussion. The afternoon sessions will focus on planting seeds and starting discussions on developing research to tackle major topics and exploring how the Sustainable Futures theme can enable and support the development of collaborative research.
This event is open to academic staff and doctoral candidates and is free to attend. To confirm your attendance, please select 'reserve your place' at the top of this page. We also request that you select two priority areas from the list of sub-themes; this information will be used to inform the scheduling of breakout rooms. Sessions on all five sub-themes will be available on the day and you are welcome to attend those of your choice.
