The topic of sustainable development is one of the most pressing of modern times. It is imperative that research is shared and best practices discussed so that we may build a future that conserves natural resources while still meeting the needs of society.

With this in mind, Agnès Henri, Managing Director of EDP Sciences is delighted to be hosting a dedicated forum at this year’s London Book Fair on “Green, Low-carbon and Sustainable Development: Building a Resource-Saving and Environmentally Friendly Society”.

The forum will include keynote talks by eminent researchers in the discipline, as well as an update on the current publishing status and future plans for developing research in these critical areas.

The event is open to all interested delegates. Please see the full agenda below for more information on individual keynote talks.

Date: March 12

Time: 9:30-10:40 a.m
