I4S: Sally Randles as New Scientist in Charge
Sally Randles is honoured to have been confirmed in the role of ‘Scientist in Charge’ of the ‘Innovation 4 Sustainability (I4S)’ European Commission Marie Curie (Early Stage Researcher) Initial Training Network (ITN), which is coordinated by ABIS.
Sally was touched to have been asked to step-up to the role for the remaining year of the project following very sad and untimely death of the irreplaceable Professor Nigel Roome from cancer in January 2016. The network combines exemplary PhD and early stage researcher training with substantive research topics on sustainable development at the levels of individuals (values-driven leadership); organisations (new business models for sustainability) and systems thinking (biological and human ecosystems vulnerabilities and resilience).
In her role Sally will work very closely with ABIS to progress the final year of mentoring, dissemination, engagement, and reporting to the Commission, including Chairing the final conference aimed at a practitioner and policy audience at ABIS in Brussels on 28 October 2016.
