Conference: Contribution of Sustainable Economy Achieving the SDGs

Am 25. und 26. September 2017 wird die von NaWiKo organisierte internationale Konferenz„SustEcon Conference – The contribution of a sustainable economy to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals” an der FU Berlin stattfinden.

Der Schwerpunkt der Konferenz wird auf dem Beitrag von nachhaltigem Wirtschaften zur Erreichung der Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) liegen, wobei dieser Beitrag auf unterschiedlichen Ebenen zu finden sein kann: Innovationen für die Erreichung der SDGs sollen ebenso Thema der Konferenz sein wie methodische Fragen zur Messung von Nachhaltigkeit, aber auch unterschiedliche Diskurse und Konzepte und deren Beiträge bzw. deren Differenzen in Bezug auf nachhaltiges Wirtschaften. Zudem sollen auch die (politischen) Rahmenbedingungen und Barrieren einer nachhaltigen Wirtschaft im Kontext sowie der Beitrag der Wissenschaft zu den SDGs Gegenstand der Konferenz sein.

Call for papers: SustEcon Conference

We invite scholars to submit abstracts for papers on the following issues:

  • Innovations for a sustainable economy: Following a broad notion of innovation, we invite papers on case studies on social, organisational, institutional, and technological innovations for the sustainable economy. Analyses of potentials and requirements for scaling and diffusion of these innovations are particularly welcome.
  • Transformation to a sustainable economy: We also welcome contributions from transformation research that analyse driving forces and options for the shaping of transformations towards a sustainable economy.
  • Discourses on a sustainable economy and society: Papers are invited that analyse the requirements and potential contributions of different discourses (Green Economy, Degrowth, etc.) to achieving the SDGs and their roles for the sustainable economy.
  • Key barriers for scaling and diffusion of innovations: We also welcome papers, which analyse the requirements for implementing a sustainable economy in different SDG contexts. This may cover political framework conditions for implementing a sustainable economy, the integration of the SDGs in the multilevel system, and their implementation across policy domains. Papers may also focus on the special role of developed countries in implementing the SDGs not only in their own context but also in development cooperation for achieving the SDGs.
  • The role of research in the SDG context: We invite papers, which address the contribution of research to implementing SDGs and/ or achieving a sustainable economy by analysing research agendas and assessing the impacts of research in the SDG context.
  • Methodological questions: Furthermore, papers are welcome that develop further methodological approaches such as the development of indicators for evaluating contributions to the sustainable economy and methods for measuring the contribution of an innovation to achieving SDGs, etc.

Proposals should consist of an abstract of 1000 words that outlines the research question and approach as well as its relevance for the conference topic including preliminary findings. Proposals should be submitted through the conference website: http://nachhaltigeswirtschaften-soef.de/en/sustecon-conference.

Submission of abstracts
is open from 15 March 2017 to 25 April 2017.
