The Grantham Centre team has been busy welcoming a new group of Grantham Scholars.
Over the last few weeks Deborah Beck and Jana Green have created a series of induction events to make our new people feel at home. Our latest group is the 9th cohort to join our efforts to create a sustainable future, bringing the number of Grantham Scholars to 96!
Deborah Beck welcomes the new Grantham Scholars to the Grantham Centre.
The new Scholars took part in sessions such as ‘Interacting with business’ with Dr Richard Bruce, our Chief Business Advisor. And they learned about peer review with Professor Rachael Rothman, Grantham Centre Co-Director. Also, Dr Tim Cooper led them on a session called ‘Bridging the Culture Gap’ which was attended by Scholars from other cohorts.
Our researchers, the Grantham Scholars, conduct sustainability research across disciplines at the University of Sheffield. From plant pathogens to policy, our researchers work on an impressive range of topics, all related to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Grantham Scholars create cross-cutting knowledge that examines sustainability issues from multiple points of view. Also, our people come to work with us from all over the world. As a result, the Grantham Centre is part of a two-way flow of knowledge and practice.
At the Grantham Centre the Scholars have expert support from the team. Part of this is the bespoke training programme which includes courses on communication, policy engagement and working with industry. As a result, Grantham Scholars are well set up to become the next generation of sustainability leaders.
