This autumn, Alliance members are coming together to launch the new DTA Future Societies, which is supporting solutions-driven research that tackles the world’s most pressing challenges, with projects guided by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The collaborative research environment of the DTA Future Societies will nurture the potential of our doctoral researchers to generate the visionary strategies required to protect the world’s ecological balance while taking care of the fundamental human needs of food, water and energy sustainability via the subthemes of resource sustainability, citizen equality and societal challenges.
Future Societies doctoral researchers will be brought together later this month for the first time to start exploring how their projects and experience will interact with one another to form an interdisciplinary cohort tackling global challenges.
