Research morning FBE - 'Ethics and Sustainability'

Tuesday, 27 February, 2024 - City Campus, Rooms S.K.201 and S.K.202

This Research Morning, hosted by the FBE Research Committee and the FBE Committee for Ethics & Sustainability, wants to connect junior and senior FBE and AMS researchers around the central themes of ethics and sustainability, in the broadest sense of the words. In this way, we also want to expose the research around ethics and sustainability that is currently being done at FBE and AMS across all topics and research groups.
