Sustainable social development the theme

The theme of the 2018 meeting of the heads of Mistra’s various research initiatives was sustainable development of society, including a focus on the UN’s global Sustainable Development Goals. As well as discussing their various research areas, the delegates listened to Eva Persson of the interdisciplinary Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies at Lund University offering insights into the potential for collaboration across subject boundaries.

‘Gathering the programme directors for this conference also gives them the opportunity to discuss and exchange useful experience of how they review their own work,’ said Mistra’s CEO Åke Iverfeldt.
