The government of the Netherlands initiates a transition towards the circular economy. This offers a very interesting opportunity for the SENSE network to take part in this transition. Our graduate school organisation is well positioned in inter- and transdisciplinary research approaches and very well suited to assist this national process on achieving sustainability in the key resources of our societies economy.
Huub Rijnaarts, chairman of the SENSE Board initiated a SENSE network meeting / workshop on 13 March on how SENSE researchers, companies and governments can join forces to assist this process. The workshop is organised in close collaboration with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment (I&M) and the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL).
If you are interested to participate and discuss possible future initiatives with SENSE participation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chair: Huub Rijnaarts (chair general board of SENSE)
