At the Sustainability Office, we're passionate about connecting researchers interested in sustainability. We're developing an app that helps you find peers with similar research interests across faculties. I've attached some screenshots for a preview below.
Our app provides insights into your profile based on thesis topics and shows connections with other researchers. It's a valuable tool for identifying potential research partners within VU who share your interests.
The SDGs created by the United Nations, are designed to outline the primary global priorities for the coming years to enhance sustainability. These goals, while focused on sustainability, encompass a broad spectrum of objectives that extend beyond environmental concerns. As a result, the SDGs hold significance for individuals and organizations beyond those directly engaged in sustainability efforts. The topics next to the SDGs reflect the texts that are collected and could treat topics closely but also more loosely or even not at all related to sustainability
Creating individual profiles based on the SDGs and their associated topics is a practical way to categorize and understand the interests and expertise of different individuals. These profiles can then be used to establish connections between people. When two individuals share common topics in their profiles, it signifies shared interests or expertise, making them suitable for network links.
The full version will be released soon. If you want to join our project, fill in the survey!
