Event description

Description

We welcome applications to participate in a workshop on disruptive low carbon innovation on Wednesday March 8, 2017, organised by Future Earth and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, with support from the UK’s Science and Innovation Network. Please click on the 'Register' button to submit your details.

What is the purpose of the workshop?


The workshop will identify the role that disruptive innovations can play in a low carbon economy across different sectors and applications. Together we will inform the global science and research agenda on low carbon transformation. We will create a new network of researchers and practitioners as part of a growing momentum behind disruptive low carbon innovation.

Why is the workshop valuable for you?


The workshop is designed to be broad, covering disruptive low carbon innovations in different sectors (energy, cities, transport, agriculture) and applications (supply, distribution, end-use, consumer goods). The participatory nature of the workshop will enable all participants to learn from practice and insights in different arenas, and to define more focused questions assessing the potential contribution of disruptive innovations to low carbon transformation.

Costs

We have a limited budget and so unfortunately we cannot provide travel and accomodation expenses. But, if your participation is valuable and you are limited by expenses, please do let Asher know.
