BECC annual meeting: Pushing the research frontier
This year’s BECC Annual Meeting will focus on exploring scientific breakthroughs, and what it takes to push the frontiers of scientific research. The Meeting will provide a vibrant forum to have an open discussion about what it takes to deliver scientific breakthroughs in today’s research landscape. The Meeting will be a space for researchers at all career stages to get insight, inspiration and a better understanding about pushing the frontier of scientific research to address the dual crisis of climate change and biodiversity loss.
The research conducted at BECC focuses on the effects of climate change on natural resources, ecosystem services and biodiversity. BECC address the needs of society through groundbreaking studies that help transform and extend current knowledge to tackle the dual crises of climate change and biodiversity loss. The transformation of the knowledge frontier comes gradually through incremental refinement and elaboration of ideas that could lead to breakthrough discoveries. Several reasons have been proposed for creating the conditions necessary for scientific breakthroughs from cognitive diversity in research teams to psychological traits, such as tenacity, of individual scientists.
PS. We hope that you are longing for getting to know each other even better - take the opportunity to arrive on the evening before and spend some more informal time together! DS.
