We are delighted to announce that CA member, the University of Siena (Italy), has been selected by the United Nations as the Mediterranean hub for the UN Sustainble Developement Solutions Network. This regional network, called the Mediterranean Sustainable Development Solutions Network, MED-SDSN, will gather member universities, research centres and businesses interested in identifying and promoting Solutions Initiatives in the Mediterranean basin.
The University of Siena and the SDSN are now launching a call for proposals, a competition among researchers/practitioners and students for the most practical and transformational solutions for sustainable development in the Mediterranean.
The Solutions Initiatives should be practical project proposals involving novel technologies, business models, institutional mechanisms, and/or policies that are promising but not yet proven. They should address a well-defined set of problems, have a transformative impact on sustainable development and be scalable, following a successful demonstration. They must be technically feasible and implementable within a reasonable timeframe without the need for primary research.
The teams proposing the most promising solutions will be invited to present their ideas at the Siena Conference on the 5th of July.
