We decided to host the conference online only as the COVID-19 pandemic does currently not allow for a physical gathering. Registered participants receive a link to join the conference in due time.
We apologise for any inconveniences. Please contact the KFPE if you have any questions.
We are looking forward to welcome you to the conference in spring 2021.
Research shall contribute to transformations towards sustainable development. How does such research look like and what is needed to promote this kind of research? Will transformative research become the new normal or is it just a short-lived new fashion?
This conference brings together actors from academia, civil society, private sector, administration and politics to discuss the role of research for transformation. With presentations of examples of innovative transformative research partnerships and expectations from policy workers and practitioners we learn more about the potential but also challenges of transformative research. Together, we discuss how to implement, improve and promote transformative research.
The conference is online only as the COVID-19 pandemic does currently not allow for a physical gathering.
