RCN-SEES: Network for Utilization of Social Science Research on Sustainability and Energy (NUSSRoSE)

Lead PI: Elke Weber, Ruth Bell

Unit Affiliation: Center for Research on Environmental Decisions (CRED)

January 2012 - October 2014
North America ; United States
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The major goal of this network is to help integrate research on human perception, reaction, and response to environmental risks across social science disciplines and make such insights accessible to practitioners, giving social sciences beyond economics a role in the development of policy options, programs for behavioral change, and in public communication about climate change, energy consumption, and other sustainability challenges.

OUTCOMES: 2012-2014: Using physical and virtual meetings, team members will create a forum for the integration and sharing of theory, results, and experience (a) across disciplinary lines, and (b) between the academic supply side and the practitioner demand side building better two-way communication between these two communities.
