View Online

Date: 26 January 2022 Time: 09:00-10:00 CET

Speaker: Anders Karlsson, Vice President, Elsevier

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a powerful tool to track progress towards a sustainable society that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The research community, including librarians as information professionals and publishers, have a key role in delivering high quality information to researchers, organizations and policy makers in order to act on the world that we all live in. In the presentation, the speaker will:

  • give an overview of some of broader industry initiatives around the SDGs, but in particular introduce analytics and collaborations around the SDG research landscape;
  • address questions such as north-south collaboration and gender aspects;
  • introduce key finding from a recent report Pathways to Net Zero: The Impact of Clean Energy Research
