Research Collegium for the Advancement of Sustainability (RECAST)

To contribute to the advancement of sustainability, Dalarna University has established the Research Collegium for the Advancement of Sustainability (RECAST).


RECAST is a forum for researchers and doctoral students from all disciplines to meet and discuss research relating to sustainability, share knowledge, promote interdisciplinary collaboration, widen networks, and develop collaborative partnerships. RECAST is open to anyone who is interested in the role of research in the transition to a sustainable society.

RECAST seminars are conducted in English. To indicate your interest in receiving continuous information about the RECAST seminars and other activities, please do not hesitate to contact Farhana Borg,

October 26: Interdisciplinary Researchers’ Networks Grant

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend a seminar on “Interdisciplinary Researchers’ Networks”, during which we will share our experiences of the interdisciplinary researchers’ networks and inspire new research collaboration locally within Dalarna University (DU) and also internationally.

In this seminar, ten presenters will share their experiences about the projects that were awarded a grant for interdisciplinary researchers’ networks at DU in 2020. For further information about the seminar, please see the attached program (pdf).

The seminar has been organised by the Research Collegium for the Advancement of Sustainability (RECAST) with support from Dalarna University’s Council for Sustainability. This seminar is in line with the Sustainable Development Goals in Agenda 2030, which emphasise the involvement of universities in promoting interdisciplinary scholarly networks to address major global challenges concerning environmental, social, and economic issues.
