Green Transition Ecosystem townhall
Tuesday Jan 31, 2023
2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Bakala Auditorium, the Design Museum, London
Join the Design Museum’s Future Observatory and the Arts and Humanities Research Council for our Green Transition Ecosystem townhall and networking event on Tuesday 31 January 2023.
Find out more about Future Observatory: Design the Green Transition research opportunities, hear from the Future Observatory research cohort and learn more on how to apply for Green Transition Ecosystem (GTE) funding to address green transition challenges.
Green Transition Ecosystems are part of ARHC and Future Observatory’s three-year Future Observatory: Design the Green Transition programme. GTEs are large scale projects that focus on translating the best design-led research into real-world benefits. Capitalising on clusters of design excellence, GTEs will address distinct challenges posed by the climate crisis, including, but not limited to, realising net zero goals. More information about the call can be found here.
Each GTE will identify a green transition challenge(s) its consortium is uniquely able to address and develop a programme of research and innovation activity tailored to addressing them through high-quality, multidisciplinary and intersectoral design research. The challenge(s) each GTE seeks to address should require and promote the sustainable integration and leadership of arts and humanities design research in multidisciplinary fields of study related to net zero and the green transition.
GTEs will connect directly with the wider Future Observatory: Design the Green Transition programme.
This event will provide an opportunity for researchers across the UK to come together at the Design Museum in London to learn more about the GTE scheme and to network with other academics, designers and industry/third sector collaborators. Similar events are hosted in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales in November 2022.
The event will be hosted by a panel of AHRC and Future Observatory representatives, including the leadership team, research steering group and current FO research fellows.
This event is free to attend but booking is essential.
