Meeting with Jeffrey Sachs

Jeffrey Sachs, Director of The Earth Institute, Columbia University, and Karl Aiginger, co-ordinator of WWWforEurope, met on March 12th 2014, to discuss current research and possibilities for collaboration. They found a lot of common ground, and discussed how together they could increase the impact of the scientific findings of their institutions and networks on policy makers. Jeffrey Sachs suggested that the WWWforEurope project could also connect with the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris 2015. Karl Aiginger invited him to become a member of the WWWforEurope Scientific Board, which Jeffrey Sachs accepted.
