Multiple stressors and chemical mixtures: A joint challenge?

Time: 1/31/2018 at 9:00 AM,
Location: Universitetsbyggnaden Vasaparken, Universitetsplatsen 1, Gula salongen

Event type: Research profile seminar, Lecture

The current epoch is characterised by an unprecedented influence of human societies on ecosystems through multiple anthropogenic stressors. These stressors range from habitat degradation over invasive species to pollution including by toxicants. Professor Ralf B. Schäfer will first present recent studies on the co-occurrence of stressors and chemicals in the field and present two research avenues to deal with these phenomena: 1) Prioritisation of mixtures and stressors and 2) Advancement of predictive capabilities using theoretical models.

Lecturer: Lecturer: Professor Dr. Ralf B. Schäfer (Phd 2008), working group leader in Quantitative Landscape Ecology, is professor at the University Koblenz-Landau since 2010 in the Institute for Environmental Sciences. With other 130 staff members and 12 professors, the Institute for Environmental Sciences is one of the largest german University Institutes devoted to research in the Environmental Sciences. Ralfs main expertise is the exposure and effects of different environmental stressors, with a particular emphasis on organic toxicants, on freshwater invertebrates, microbes and ecosystem functions using field investigations and different statistical and spatial modelling techniques. He has published over 80 articles in international peer-reviewed journals including leading multidisciplinary journals.

Johan Kuylenstierna about research-policy interaction

Time: 2/21/2018 at 3:30 PM,
Location: The location for the seminar will be communicated later.

Event type: Lecture

World leader at bridging science and policy - what can universities learn from Stockholm Environment Institute, SEI? Johan Kuylenstierna, Executive Director for SEI, and new board member of the University of Gothenburg, shares his view of how universities and researchers can expand the policy impact of their work.

Lecturer: Johan has previously held positions with the UN system (UNDESA at the UN HQ in NY, WMO in Geneva and FAO in Rome) and has also worked many years at the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI). He has also a background as a consultant focusing on sustainability and corporate core value processes within both the private and public sector. His academic background is Earth Sciences and his research focused on palaeoclimatology in the Polar Regions. He currently holds an adjunct professorship in international water resources at the Stockholm University, and he was appointed Honorary Doctor at the same university in 2017.
