Memberships of Working Groups, Professional Communities, and Academic Societies

The MARS group strongly believes in the importance of societal engagement, both at the local, regional, and international level. The creation of academic knowledge is seen within a wider practice-oriented and policy context, and efforts are made to bridge these different domains. This is done by giving talks to industry- and government stakeholders, organizing workshops, and participation in working groups aligned with our expertise. Furthermore, we are members of selected academic and professional societies, to remain updated in current developments in the wider domain.
