    Lecture: The New Green Economy

    How do we address the key challenges of transitioning to a greener and more sustainable society? Part of the solution might be to incorporate stocks and flows of natural resources and pollutants into models of the economy. Join us for a lecture on how we may use a green GDP index measuring the economic values of nature and concepts of circular economy to build models that can help us understand the interlinkages between natural resources and the rest of the economy at both a national scale and across borders – and how we make these models better. We are excited to announce our two Keynote Speakers, who will present their research and work on this interesting topic: Jette Bredahl Jacobsen, who is both Professor at Section for Environment and Natural Resources, Deputy Chairman of the Danish Council for Climate Change, and Special Advisor in the Environmental Economic Council. And Lars Gårn Hansen, who is also Professor at Section for Environment and Natural Resources, and is part of the Chairmanship in the Economic Council and the Environmental Economic Council advising the government on economic and environmental economic issues. Register to receive a link on mail the day of the event.

    What is Copenhagen Bioscience Lectures?

    The Copenhagen Bioscience Lectures is a series of open lectures for all researchers and other interested in and around the Copenhagen area. Every 4 weeks, on a Thursday evening, you are invited for lectures on themes with a general interest for the Novo Nordisk Foundation Research Centers and bioscience researchers in general. Often there will be a cross-disciplinary focus.

    Is the event only online?

    Yes. Following the recent development, we have decided that this month’s lecture is only available online.

    Will it be possible to ask questions?

    Yes. Both oral and written questions are very welcome.

    Is it safe to participate physically?

    You cannot participate physically this month. Normally, we have taken the necessary precautions to make sure that the event lives up to the health authorities recommendations. We limit the capacity to only a third of our actual capacity, we will provide face masks and hand sanitizers to those present, and we serve food and snacks in portions on single trays. We also stress that everyone displaying any kind of symptoms are not allowed to participate physically. Still, if you do not feel comfortable being gathered with up to 50 people, we recommend that you participate online.

    I would like to know about upcoming Copenhagen Bioscience Lectures – where can I find information?

    You are very welcome to join the ‘Copenhagen Bioscience Cluster’s Linkedin and/or Facebook group. There you will find information about upcoming lectures, and much more. Also, you may want to sign up for the weekly announcement with events and deadlines, sent out by the group manager.

    What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

    If you are by car, you can park for free in front or at the side of Tuborg Havnevej 19.
