“Building together a sustainable world”
The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) invites its entire community, its various stakeholders and partners, and every person interested to meet at its annual conference to discuss the latest developments in an area of priority for BIST research, this year focusing in sustainability.
Our current patterns of production and consumption are depleting the planet’s resources, such as biomass, water, minerals, and fossil fuels, while generating exponential growth in waste, as well as air and soil pollution. This has resulted in the serious climate crisis we are experiencing, which threatens the future of humanity.
As scientists working in some of the most advanced research institutions in our country, BIST researchers know the science behind climate change and recognise the urgency to take actions to address global warming and avoid its catastrophic effects. We feel compelled to use our science to meet this global social challenge, as reflected in the BIST Research Initiative on Energy and Environmental Sustainability.
The conference programme will include outstanding national and international keynote speakers and different roundtables with the participation of BIST researchers. We are also organising several satellite sessions that will be held in the previous days. Keep tunned to know more about the programme.
