CEC Fellows December 2018 newsletter
Dear colleagues,

Hope you had a productive and inspiring research year 2018! Climate, environment and sustainability research is more important when ever, and together we can make a difference.
Although we are not even past christmas, CEC Fellows is already gearing up for 2019. In January and throughout the year, Cerina Wittbom will take over the coordination of CEC Fellows from Marianne who will go on parental leave. Cerina has previously worked as a project manager at the Skåne Energy Agency and has a PhD in physics with specialization on aerosol technology.

During 2019, CEC Fellows welcomes all members to a new series of seminars, starting out February 14th with Åsa Knaggård and colleagues from political science straightening out the concept of Governance as a research perspective for us. We are planning three more seminars around pivotal concepts from different disciplines, so if you have suggestions for concepts to discuss, please let us know! Also, don’t miss out on the Sustainability Week – Transforming our world, April 8-13.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year of 2019!
Marianne, Cerina, Yann and Lina
