Science for the Environment Conference
MAPPING FUTURE HORIZONS Identifying knowledge gaps for the Climate Action and Resource Efficiency Challenge in Horizon 2020.  The EU strategy for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 points to major societal challenges to which the research community should identify solutions. One of these is the challenge: Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials. Aarhus University aims at bringing its research together across disciplines to foster solutions to the challenges facing society. Fifteen years after the Aarhus Convention was agreed, we invite researchers from all disciplines to Aarhus University on the 3rd and 4th of October 2013. We will assess the current status of the scientific analyses of the future environmental issues and provide input to the European Commission on the knowledge gap and future research needs to meet the Horizon 2020 challenge.
