Title: Navigating Transdisciplinary and Transnational Research in the Food-Land-Water-Energy Nexus

Description: This workshop is the first in a series of GLASSNET workshops aimed at equipping early career researchers with the skills and mindset necessary for navigating the dynamic and interconnected world of contemporary scientific research. This session delves into the pivotal role of transdisciplinary and transnational research, encouraging young scholars to embrace a broader perspective in shaping their research endeavors. Three speakers will discuss how they have incorporated interdisciplinary, international dimensions into their research. Using diverse methods such as modelling, spatial analysis, and empirical research, these speakers will present their experiences of navigating the inter-relationships between food-land-water-energy topics.

Title: Quantitative Modelling of Sustainable Development Pathways

Description: The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection. In this workshop, you will hear from leading researchers at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Change Research (PIK) about their efforts to quantify sustainable pathways for the food and land systems in an attempt to meet the SDGs.
