Science Day: Sustainability

What characterizes the current sustainability crisis? How would societies need to change to achieve a sustainability transformation? And what can research contribute to this challenge?


These are the questions that this year’s Science Day will address. Research inputs by members of the Young Academy will showcase a broad diversity of (inter-)disciplinary approaches to sustainability challenges. A facilitated discussion with invited guests will further explore the role of research in the face of the current crises. Ample room for discussion will enable delving into diverging views and identifying common grounds on how research can contribute to understanding and solving the current sustainability crisis.

When: September 23, 2022 (9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.)

Where: Sitzungssaal der ÖAW, Dr. Ignaz Seipel-Platz 2, 1010 Vienna
