FKNE WARMLY WELCOMES THE BIRTH OF THE SUSTAINABLE EUROPEAN LABORATORIES NETWORK (SELS)

FENS-Kavli Scholars warmly welcomes and support the Sustainable European Laboratories Network (SELs), which has been recently launched. .

With Europe aiming to become carbon-neutral by 2050 and sustainability increasingly becoming a core principle for many institutions, a growing number of local ‘green lab initiatives’ to promote sustainable science and mitigate the environmental impact of scientific research have been independently spreading across Europe.       

SELs was formed with the clear vision of creating a collective identity that advocates for sustainable research practices in Europe.              

 

Organised as a network of local sustainability teams as well as independent ‘green labs’ networks, SELs aims to transform the way science is done so that it better responds to the environmental challenges of our era.
