    About the Conference 

    The annual NEST Conference presents an opportunity for exchange between early career researchers (ECRs) working on topics related to sustainability transitions. The 8th NEST Conference (2023) will be hosted by the Leibniz-Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER) and the Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS) in Dresden, Germany and will take place on the 30th of June and the 1st of July 2023 in a hybrid (online+on-site) format.

    The purpose of the conference is to provide a platform for networking, knowledge exchange, and research discussion among junior and senior scholars. It aims to promote worldwide scientific collaboration between ECRs. We accept submissions on sustainability transition themes at local and global scales, whether they concentrate on debating theoretical approaches or examining emerging methodologies for sustainability transition research.

    The conference structure includes a variety of engaging sessions, inspiring keynotes, and innovative formats to promote discussion on issues pertaining to sustainable transitions. Communication between participants will be interactive. Thanks to the hybrid conference, participants either on-site or online will be able to share their most recent research and concepts. Finally, there will be plenty of fun, time for socializing and networking with your peers from all over the globe!
