Objectives

As part of the work to better link Swedish research to international Global Change programs, the Swedish Secretariat for Environmental Earth System Sciences (SSEESS) visits Swedish universities and other research bodies to present SSEESS and inform about the potentials of and for international research collaboration, preferably in the form of seminars. SSEESS also seeks direct involvement with Swedish scientists to assist with relevant contacts and networking support at individual and project levels. SSEESS aims to primarily collaborate with existing relevant networks in Sweden, including the Earth System Governance International Project Office at Lund University.

The objectives of the seminar are to inform researchers about the activities and goals of SSEESS and the potentials of and for international research collaboration, as well as to stimulate a continued dialogue between participants, and SSEESS.
