The Knowledge Hub on Climate will explore how universities can contribute with knowledge and solutions to the pressing issues of climate change, and examine the implications of the European Green Deal.
Academic Chairs in the Knowledge Hub on Climate
The role of the chairs
The chairs in the Academic Chair programme will:
- Link education and research within and across disciplines, focusing here on issues related to climate;
- Engage students to take an active role in knowledge creation and socially-engaged research on a theme which already captures their interest;
- Represent and champion Circle U. within the alliance, nationally and internationally, as well as with external stakeholders. One opportunity for such exchanges will most probably be the Training Programme for Practitioners on Climate Change.
- Stimulate new models of academic collaboration and partnership in their domain of expertise, and share these across Circle U.
