At the meetings we will follow up the discussions that were initiated at the BECC annual meeting in October, initiate collaborative work, and make short- and long term plans for theme activities, such as seminars, workshops, actions groups and conferences. The discussions will be a basis for strategic plans for the three themes. We will also discuss an upcoming BECC call.

All BECC researchers and PhD students are welcome to join all meetings - you can sign up for one or for several meetings, depending on your research interests and possibilities. 

Welcome!

About the themes

The three new themes (Carbon & Climate Change, Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity) focuses on an overarching issue of scientific importance, in need of scientific coordination, with high relevance to decision making and with potentially high impact on international research, today and in coming years.

Themes function as platforms for intellectual exchange and mutual learning, where researchers meet and develop ideas for new collaborations, research projects, networking, outreach and dissemination activities. To utilize the full potential of the wide range of experience and expertise represented within BECC, Themes cut across disciplines, departments as well as Lund and Gothenburg universities.
