Transatlantic Climate Conversations at the University of Mannheim

On 16 March 2023, the Transatlantic Climate Conversations series, in which researchers from the University of Mannheim and the Brandeis University in the US will discuss pressing questions about the climate crisis, will start. Everyone interested from the ENGAGE.EU universities is invited to join the online discussions.

In the Transatlantic Climate Conversations series, researchers on both sides of the Atlantic will have the opportunity to engage with each other informally and discuss the status quo of the climate crisis. Every online seminar has a different focus. Scholars will present the latest research results, learn from each other, and discuss how we can master the challenges of climate change and have a more optimistic outlook on the future. 

The dates and topics of the online seminars on climate change are as follows:

16 March at 5 p.m.:
Professor Christoph Bode and Professor Ben Gomes-Casseres, Ph.D.: “Climate Change and Business: Sustainable Alliances and Sustainable Operations”
