The 25th Irish Environmental Researchers Colloquium will be held at the Institute of Technology, Sligo from April 8th to 10th 2015. It will be co-hosted by IT Sligo and the Environmental Sciences Association of Ireland (ESAI).
Are we sustainable? The 25th Anniversary colloquium theme addresses the need to review environmental change since the first Environ was held. Although technologies and knowledge transfer systems have developed exponentially since 1990, major challenges to global sustainability have concurrently evolved. Is current Irish environmental research optimising research to deliver management and policy recommendations towards sustainability? The colloquium will investigate current sustainability actions while addressing opportunities for positive changes in engagement.
The ENVIRON colloquium is the largest annual gathering of environmental researchers across the island of Ireland, with over 275 delegates attending the event each year. It provides a venue for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows to exchange information on their most up-to-date findings with a large and diverse audience made up of academics, industry members and policy makers. It is a wonderful platform for the sharing of ideas and for knowledge transfer among groups working in disparate disciplines. The interdisciplinary nature of the colloquium and its associated workshops fosters successful interaction between scientists, engineers, social scientists, medical researchers and industry members and policy makers.
The call for papers will open on January 12th 2015.
