The organizers will be back with a new date during autumn 2020. Professor Anne L’Huillier, Lund University, Sweden is the winner of the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2020. She will visit the Gothenburg Physics Centre to receive the award and give the traditional award lecture in honour of the Austrian-Swedish physicist Lise Meitner. ​ Professor L’Huillier receives the award “For pioneering contributions to attosecond laser science and technology”. ​</p><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Centrum/Fysikcentrum/Gothenburg%20Lise%20Meitner%20Award/Lise%20Meitner%202020/150_Anne_H_.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:110px;height:146px" />Professor Anne L'Huillier has been at the forefront of ultrafast laser science since its inception, with her pioneering contributions to high-order harmonic light generation, which is a base technology for attosecond science. Her research has helped foster the field of attosecond science, allowing scientists to visualize the movements of electrons in light-induced processes, which can be used to understand chemical reactions on the atomic level.​<br /><br /><a href="https://portal.research.lu.se/portal/en/persons/anne-lhuillier%28266ecd6e-b257-4a8e-988f-8d232b31abb3%29.html" target="_blank"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/ichtm.gif" alt="" />Read more about<strong> </strong><span style="font-weight:300"><strong>Professor L'Huillier's</strong> </span>research​</a><br /><a href="/en/centres/gpc/activities/lisemeitner/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/ichtm.gif" alt="" />Read more about The Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award and previous laureates​​</a>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/tme/calendar/Pages/ITS-webinar-on-Tracking-and-Tracing-Apps.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/tme/calendar/Pages/ITS-webinar-on-Tracking-and-Tracing-Apps.aspxITS webinar on Tracking & Tracing Apps<p>Online event</p><p>​The role of tracking – tracing – testing (3T) apps and big data in the fight against COVID-19</p><div><p class="chalmersElement-P"></p> <div>This webinar takes stock of the role of tracking, testing and tracing apps and their effectiveness in the fight against COVID-19.

The Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) address precisely such societal challenges. To reach these goals, inter- and trans-disciplinary science and co-creation are highly needed.</p>​<span class="event-description d-block"><p>Together with <b>Oslo Metropolitan University</b> and <b>Södertörn University</b>, the <b>SDSN Northern Europe</b> secretariat now arranges a webinar to discuss how to succeed in inter- and trans-disciplinary science and co-creation and promote more sustainable societies. You will learn how these concepts are defined and can be applied, get advice on success factors and barriers from inter- and trans-disciplinary projects, hear about how funding agencies view this type of research and how industry use these concepts. You will also be able to interact with the other participants, share experiences and learn from each other.</p> <p><br /></p></span><span class="event-description d-block"><h1>In the program</h1> <ul><li><b>Multi-, Inter-, and Trans-disciplinarity, and Co-creation – definitions and applications<br /></b><i>Eeva Furman, Finnish Environment Institute<br /><br /></i></li> <li><b>On success factors and barriers for Inter- and Trans-disciplinary, and Co-creation in research:<br /></b><br />Experiences from the <b>MISTRA Urban Futures</b> project<br /><i>Jan Riise, Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development<br /><br /></i>Experiences from the <b>GOVRISK</b> project<br /><i>Gro Sandkjær Hanssen, Oslo Metropolitan University<br /><br /></i>Experiences from the <b>REINVENT</b> project<br /><i>Malin Gawell, Södertörn University<br /><br /></i></li> <li><b>Share and learn in small discussion groups<br /><br /></b></li> <li><b>The funding perspective on Transdisciplinary Research<br /></b><i>Lillian Baltzrud, The Research Council of Norway<br /><br /></i></li> <li><b>The role of Multi-, Inter- and Trans disciplinarity when developing sustainable solutions for low GHG agriculture<br /></b><i>Birgitte Holter, Yara Climate Neutral Solutions</i></li></ul> <div><br /></div> <div><br /></div> </span><span class="event-description d-block"><a href="https://ui.ungpd.com/Events/b3e966d8-2a60-47d3-9359-ac206c66e69d" title="Link to registration"></a><div><a href="https://ui.ungpd.com/Events/b3e966d8-2a60-47d3-9359-ac206c66e69d" title="Link to registration"><span><span class="event-description d-block"></span></span></a><a href="https://ui.ungpd.com/Events/b3e966d8-2a60-47d3-9359-ac206c66e69d" title="Link to registration"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" /><span style="display:inline-block"></span></a><a href="https://ui.ungpd.com/Events/b3e966d8-2a60-47d3-9359-ac206c66e69d" title="Link to registration">FIND MORE INFORMATION AND REGISTER HERE</a></div></span><span class="event-description d-block"><a href="https://ui.ungpd.com/Events/b3e966d8-2a60-47d3-9359-ac206c66e69d" title="Link to registration"></a></span><span class="event-description d-block"><div><br /></div> <h3>Warmly welcome!</h3> <p><i>Elin Wyller, Oslo Metropolitan University<br />Björn Hassler, Södertörn University<br />Martin Eriksson, SDSN Northern Europe</i></p></span>https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/energy/calendar/Pages/Swedish-Webinar-on-Digitalization-and-AI-in-Industry.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/energy/calendar/Pages/Swedish-Webinar-on-Digitalization-and-AI-in-Industry.aspxSwedish Webinar on Digitalization and AI in Industry<p></p><p>​This seminar is organized by the Swedish Energy Agency as a part of the Swedish involvement in one of the technology collaboration programmes (TCP) affiliated to the International Energy Agency: Industrial Energy-Related Technologies and Systems (IETS TCP).

Which investigations are best done within separate subjects and disciplines? And when are interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary or multidisciplinary working formats and perspectives the most fruitful? These are some of the issues that will be discussed during the symposium.</div> <div>Collaboration between researchers – both within and across disciplines – is also closely linked to the issue of the value of strong and dynamic research environments.
