SODAS-Climate: Opening Event


What social data science for green transition?

SODAS-Climate is a new, interdisciplinary research collaboration that uses techniques and methods from social data science to answer questions regarding the green transition. By embedding existing and emerging research, the initiative will act as a platform for exploring novel joint research endeavours - both within the University of Copenhagen and beyond.

For this opening event, we have invited existing and future collaborators in academia and consultancy to help us delineate priorities for SODAS-Climate in the coming years.
