Taskforce Meeting Day

On 27 October 2023, several meeting rooms at the conference will be provided for back-to-back events of our Project’s Taskforces, Working Groups, and Affiliated Projects.

Through Taskforces and Working Groups, the Earth System Governance Project seeks to push the frontiers of research in specific areas of its research agenda. Taskforces are led by Lead Faculty or Senior Research Fellows, with numerous Research Fellows participating. The Annual Conference is an opportunity for these groups to hold wider meetings, open up to new members, and set the agenda for the year.

Below is the provisional schedule

Taskforces and Working Groups are entitled to a 2-hour time slot, with the possibility of an additional 2-hour slot depending on room availability.

If you wish to organize a meeting, please contact the Radboud Conference organizers by email (
