“The role of research and education to ensure sustainable development”
Climate change, a result of increasing carbon emissions from fossil fuels, associated with an enormous pressure for land to feed a growing population, will require a change in our economic system.

Research and education are considered as key drivers to initiate the needed change in our economic and societal future development.
Both keynotes will be followed by a short period for questionq and answers.
