Webinar - Sustainablility and Nanorelated research - Now available online


As you will know, NTNU has announced a major initiative to identify the changes that will be needed to make the transition to a fully sustainable society. The new scheme will make 40 PhD studentships available for interdisciplinary research projects that have the potential to explain (at a systems level) how the necessary changes can be brought about. The goal is to bring together researchers from multiple disciplines (natural scientists, engineers, industrial ecologists, economists etc.) to provide a more holistic understanding of sustainability issues. Project proposals involving nanoscience and functional materials related research are particularly encouraged.

You may find the announcement text (in English) here.
The deadline for applications is 16th August.

To assist in the development of these proposals, NTNU Nano organised a short webinar where the PhD scheme was introduced and various sustainability issues of relevance to nanoscience and functional materials discussed. 

The webinar took place on, June 23rd. If you missed it, you may watch it here.
