Events: Transport events at Chalmers University of TechnologyTue, 23 Jun 2020 09:23:12 +0200 seminar: UN SDG:s – Research, applications and ranking<p>Zoom</p><p>​​A digital seminar for everyone interested in Chalmers&#39; new SDG impact assessment tool!​ Register here!</p>​<br /><span style="background-color:initial">Together with Gothenburg University, Chalmers has developed an IT tool to map research against the UN:s global sustainable development goals. The tool is called the SDG impact assessment tool and is open to use by everyone.</span><div>One way to use the tool may be to supplement applications with information on how the intended research project links to the global sustainable development goals, and the sub-goals. This is also information that research funders are increasingly demanding in their calls.</div> <div> </div> <div>In this digital lunch seminar with Maria Djupström, Chalmers' Sustainability Strategist, we will go through tool content as well as practical use. We show examples of how to map, and what the results could look like.</div> <div>Together we discuss how to use the tool in order to supplement applications, how results can be used for internal development and increased collaboration, and how the information about our research’s links to the SDG:s could be collected for a more complete report on sustainability activities and input to ranking systems.</div> <div><br />The seminar is approximately one hour, and the last 30 minutes is reserved for questions and discussions. <br /><br /></div> <div><a href="">Read more about the SDG impact assessment tool here.</a><br /><br />Welcome! Please note that this seminar is for employees at Chalmers and GU, but not intended for students.</div> <div><br /></div> <a href=""><div><strong>REGISTER HERE!</strong></div></a><div><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">Email us at </span><a href="">​</a><span style="background-color:initial"> if you need to unregister.</span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div></div> Conference on Urban Freight<p>Lindholmen Science Park, science park, Lindholmen</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> The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions<p>Chalmers Student Union Building, Chalmers Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions will be held May 18-21, 2021, at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. 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. The carbon budget is the amount of carbon dioxide that we can emit while still limiting global temperature rise to a given level, for example 1.5ºC.</span></div></div> <div><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial;font-size:14px"></span><strong>Read more and sign up to the conference:</strong><br /><a href=""><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions​</a><br /></div>
