Outreach and stakeholder interaction

Stakeholder interaction is an important asset of BECC – for advancing transdisciplinary research, for getting an understanding of the needs of the society, and also for reaching out, making sure that the knowledge built up is utilised outside academia.

BECC research provides a crucial scientific basis for management decisions and societal policies on biodiversity and ecosystem services in a changing climate. We build research capability and capacity in dialogue with disciplinary excellent research departments, ensuring breadth of expertise. 

Examples of outreach

BECC researchers are active in writing synthesis reports, policy briefs and other outreach mechanisms.

Stakeholder engagement

Many BECC researchers have their own long-term contacts with different stakeholders in their research field. 

BECC as a research area also organises workshops with joint participation by researchers and stakeholders to identify needs from society, e.g. greening the economy, forestry in a changing climate, revision of the EU Common Agricultural Policy, bioenergy on agricultural land, and greenhouse gas emission from wetlands.

Example of stakeholder interaction. Professor & BECC-coordinator Henrik Smith participates as an expert in a panel discussion with leading researchers & Swedbank's head of sustainability about the challenges for the financial system regarding biodiversity
Example of BECC stakeholder interaction and cooperation was co-organizing Swedish Climate Symposium 2022.
