Add to Calendar 17/10/2018 9:00 AM 18/10/2018 5:30 PM Australia/Sydney Integration Across the SDGs and the Role of Research

Future Earth Australia (FEA) and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Australia, New Zealand & Pacific are pleased to invite applications from early career researchers and practitioners (ECRs) to a 2-day symposium looking at how research can help address interactions between the Sustainable Development Goals.

About the symposium

One of the most innovative and far-reaching aspects of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework is that it recognises the interlinkages between and within the goals, and the need for them to be addressed as an indivisible and integrated whole. Given the complexity of interactions between the goals, and the siloed ways in which many actions are undertaken, this is also one of the hardest aspects of the SDGs for policy and decision-makers to implement.

Research is stepping up to the challenge of helping these stakeholders address the SDGs in an integrated way. Building on insights and approaches from areas such as policy coherence, systems analysis and modelling, and nexus approaches, it is developing new knowledge, approaches and tools relevant to the SDGs.

ECRS are often at the cutting edge of this innovative work. This symposium aims to help these ECRs advance their research, their careers, and the area of SDG integration more generally.

Over two days, ECRs and practitioners will:

  • connect, network and share their work with other ECRs, practitioners and experts working in this area
  • brainstorm new ideas and methods for addressing SDG integration
  • identify impact pathways for their research
  • reflect on how research in this area could be supported and expanded.

Who can apply

Applications are open to ECRs in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands working on SDG integration or relevant areas. ECRs are researchers and practitioners who are within the first five years of their career. Current PhD students and masters students (by research) will also be considered.

Attendance at the symposium is free for all participants. A limited number of travel grants are available to ECRs and practitioners from FEA member organisations on an as-needs basis. If you wish to apply for a travel grant, please complete the appropriate section on your application form.

ECR travel scholarships are awarded on an as-needs basis as assessed by FEA to the value of up to $500 per scholar. Successful scholarship recipients are responsible for making their own travel arrangements.

How to apply

Places in the symposium are limited and participants will be selected on an EOI/abstract.

Applications should be submitted via

The deadline for applications is Friday 31 August 2018.

Applicants will be notified in September on whether they have been accepted.
