BC3 Seminar: “Plural values of nature – the means determine the end”

Event Categories: ,

Research on nature-society interactions if a very broad field involving many specialisms and disciplinary schools. From a values perspective, conflicts occur when values of different groups are traded off: economic development versus indigenous culture, profit farming versus landscape heritage.

BC3 Seminar: ” Credible, effective and publicly acceptable policies to decarbonise the European Union”

Event Categories: ,

This seminar investigates the extent to which current policies and institutional arrangements are fit for purpose for the new decarbonisation phase into which the EU is entering. It summarises the main findings from the Statkraft research programme, ‘“Fit-for-purpose” energy and climate change mitigation policies for the European Union’, completed in December 2017.

BC3 Seminar: “Linking bottom-up and top-down energy modeling in the framework of EIO analysis“

Event Categories: ,

We use the model framework developed by Guevara and others to set up an EIO model where the energy system is in great part driven by the energy services (or useful energy).

BC3 Seminar: “Key plant aboveground and belowground mutualisms and ecosystem dynamics.”

Event Categories: ,

Seed dispersal and mycorrhizal associations are key mutualisms for the functioning and regeneration of plant communities; however, these processes have seldom been explored together.

BC3 Seminar: “Exploring national survey data to quantify household dependence on ecosystem services”

Event Categories: ,

Although ecosystem services are inherently at the interface of society and nature, most of the indicators used to measure them are still predominantly either biophysical or social.

BC3 Joint Seminar: March 22, 2018

Event Categories: ,

“Revisiting changing energyscapes of coal: Opportunities for engaged social science of energy”
“Environmental futures studies of urban mobility and energy solutions – experiences from Swedish policy work and engineering education”
“The expanding geography of wind power conflicts: Debating scale, control and distribution at the low-carbon transition”

BC3 Seminar: “Global Value Chain Analysis”

Event Categories: ,

International fragmentation has led to the slicing up of the production chain into ever smaller parts. Countries specialize in tasks and goods and services are transferred abroad as input for the next step in the production process. The key difference with a couple of decades ago is the enormous amount of trade in intermediate products. The consequence is that our measurements, and in particular [...]

CANCELLED_BC3 Seminar: “Academic Writing”

Event Categories: ,

This presentation focuses on the writing of a research proposal. It aims at providing tips, hints, do’s and don’ts, and is based on many years of evaluating students’ proposals. And own mistakes, of course. This lecture presents 14 lessons for writing a research proposal, often the first hurdle in an academic career. Most information for writing research proposals applies also to writing papers. After [...]

BC3 Seminar: “The limits of valuing ecosystem services and the search for alternative ways of conceiving human-nature relations”

Event Categories: ,

Land based Antarctic and Greenland ice and Arctic sea ice cover a significant fraction of the Earth's surface, and its high albedo means that much of the solar energy reaching its surface is reflected back into the atmosphere. Ice sheet and sea ice dynamics are therefore a component of a climate change model which involves the interaction of ocean and atmosphere, of ocean and [...]
