Global Sustainability Institute Research Conference 2015: The Interface Between Sustainability Research and Policy


January 26-17, 2015, Cambridge, UK


The 2015 Global Sustainability Institute Conference will bring together leaders from academia, business, government, NGOs and beyond, to discuss the interface between sustainability research and public policy and practice.  Today's researchers are judged not only on the academic quality of their work but upon the 'impact' of their research on the real world. Carbon emissions, biodiversity, economic systems, behaviours and practices are being modelled, mapped, observed and studied in an attempt to both understand and influence the real world. But how successful has it been in driving change?
