ECR NoN, in collaboration with Future Earth and the Young Scholars Initiative, is promoting a 5-session webinar series on the Science-Policy interface and how we can improve our understanding of it. The series will run weekly every Tuesday starting on the 18th of September 2018 till the 16th of October 2018. Each session will host two speakers (scientists and practitioners) with backgrounds relating to a specific Knowledge-Action-Network (KAN) of Future Earth: Urban KAN, Ocean KAN, Water-Energy-Food Nexus, Sustainable Consumption and Production KAN, Natural Assets KAN.
Registrations are now open for these sessions. Please note that there are only a limited number of spaces per session, so please register at the earliest to ensure you can attend. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Join the More Open Access Pledge!
The pledge is an initiative by early- and mid-career researchers from around the world. The goal is to push for wide availability of research findings.
Despite significant movement towards Open Science, many practitioners, policymakers, and citizens still can not access the latest evidence. And in the 21st century, that should not be the case..
Pledging means submitting 1 manuscript to an Open Access outlet (peer-reviewed OA journal or a pre-print server, to make it feasible in terms of resources) by the end of the year.
More details on the pledge are available via this blogpost or the website of the Global Young Academy (and on Tuesday, there will be a longer blogpost on the Research Whisperer).
