From representation to material and back again, Daniel Norell has been promoted to Senior Lecturer in Architecture at Chalmers University of Technology. He will briefly discuss recent and ongoing work at the intersection of research and his practice Norell/Rodhe. The work explores means of representation and fabrication applied towards architectural design that departs from existing materials, elements, and buildings.</p><div><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">Zoom-link:<br /></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><a href="">​</a><br /></span></div>ías,-Building-Design.aspx,-Building-Design.aspxPaula Femenías, Building Design<p>Digital in Zoom</p><p>​Promotion lecture for Professor: Architectural design and sustainable development of the built environment – what are the challenges?</p>​Zoom-link:<div><div><a href=""></a></div> <div>Password: 767827</div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2"><span>Abstract:</span></h2> <div><span style="background-color:initial">Architectural design and sustainable development of the built environment – what are the challenges?</span><div><br /></div> <div>In what way can architectural design support a transition towards a more sustainable built environment? In this lecture, Paula presents plans for research and teaching based on previous research, experiences and activities from the field of sustainable building and transformation. The ambition is to establish a thematic approach concerning the relationships between the fields of architecture and sustainability, aspects of design and cultural values of the built environment, and urgent challenges for environmental protection and sustainable development. All of this coupled to stakeholders, the balance between built environment as physical objects as well as parts of an overarching circular approach. We need to do more, come and join in the discussion.​</div> </div></div> Conference on Urban Freight<p>Online</p><p>​The 4th VREF Conference on Urban Freight will present current issues influencing urban freight research and discuss the complexity of designing urban space and managing flows for liveable cities.</p> Health 2021<p></p><p>​Welcome to our initiative seminar in the spring of 2021! ​</p>​<img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Areas%20of%20Advance/Health/Toppbilder/Engineering-Health-2021-750.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px" /><br /><br /><div>The Initiative Seminar Engineering Health has the subtitle <strong>Joining forces in healthcare solutions</strong>.<br /><br />This two day event is divided into four parts:</div> <div><div>• <strong>New technology:</strong> Pushing the boundaries in diagnostics and treatment</div> <div>• <strong>Prevention:</strong> Keep out (of the hospital)!</div> <div>• <strong>Restoring health:</strong> New solutions for rehabilitation</div> <div>• <strong>Modern treatment:</strong> Personalised health- and self-care<br /><br /></div></div> <div>We proudly present our inspirational speaker, world famous athlete <strong>Carolina Klüft</strong>, who will speak about her engagement in Generation Pep and for young people’s health.<br /><br />Our Initiative S<span style="background-color:initial">eminar is open to all!

The purpose of this conference series is to bring together a wide range of scientists, experts and stakeholders, in order to engage in various aspects of research relating to negative CO2 emissions. This will include various negative emission technologies, climate modelling, climate policies and incentives. The main topics of the conference, around which the sessions will be built, include:</p><ul><li>​<span style="font-size:14px"><span style="background-color:initial">BECCS</span></span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Biospheric storage</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Cross-cutting sessions</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Direct air capture</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Enhanced weathering</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Modeling</span></li> <li><span style="background-color:initial">Ocean alkalization</span></li></ul> <span></span> <div><span style="font-size:14px"></span><span></span><div><span style="font-size:14px"><strong>Background</strong></span></div> <div><span style="font-size:14px">The objective of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2ºC, and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5ºC.
