March 16, 2020 - March 18, 2020
UPDATE: Event Cancelled
“Following the recommendations concerning health precautions, the Nexus Winter School is canceled for now. We very much regret the situation and hope to be able to offer the event again in the course of the year.”
Overall topic of the workshop is the scientific coverage of the so-called water, energy and food nexus by an interdisciplinary approach. With this interdisciplinary approach the interlinkages, similarities but also differences of the mentioned three sectors, new insights and different perspectives will be achieved and a deeper understanding will be created. Another focus lies on the network benefits of this workshop, which arise when students, scholars and interested people will collaborate in such a cross-cutting scientific topic and will take into consideration the different perspectives of the “global north” and the “global south”.
Experts of different research areas from the GIZ, DIE-GDI, UNU, TH-Köln, Uni Darmstadt, Uni Bonn, and GSI will present latest research findings on the focus areas water, energy, soil and food. Additionally the participants will work in various working groups on the lecture inputs using the Open Space method.
The detailed program for the workshop will be available by mid-February.
