The Call for Abstracts for the 5th NEST conference due to take place in Lisbon at EAWAG with support of ETH Zurich has brought yet another increase in submissions: in total we have received 130 submitted abstracts! This is an increase of about 10% in comparison to last year. This can be seen as a sign that Sustainability Transitions Research is growing even further into a well-known and respected research field. The organising team is now faced by a rather bittersweet dilemma: how to combine the strong interest with organizing a cozy, higly interactive meeting where all participants are able to converse at least once with each of their peers.
The organising committee will now enter the process of reviewing the abstracts over the holiday season, aiming to notify all applicants in January.
Stay tuned for further updates.
