An evening of storytelling by researchers on the frontlines of discovery.  

Join for a fun evening of stories told by researchers themselves. Inspirational, captivating, and definitely surprising, you will have an opportunity to hear about and connect with the experiences of experts on the cutting edge of their respective fields.

The theme of this year’s edition will be the food – energy – water nexus, which emphasizes that water, energy and food security are strongly interlinked, with actions in any one particular area often having effects in one or both of the other. Food–energy–water connections lie at the heart of sustainable, economic and environmental development; the demand for all three resources continues to grow for various reasons, including a growing population, urbanization, international trade and climate change.

We are pleased and proud to have the following storytellers:

  • Florian Humpenöder – Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), Germany;
  • Azucena Morán – Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS Potsdam), Germany;
  • Zsolt Pinke – Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary; and
  • Josefine Proll – Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands.

• Growing up in Germany, Florian Humpenöder was surrounded with reminders of the past. But a decision in college would make him contemplate our climate future. 
• While researching a climate change general assembly, Azucena Morán realizes the process is not as perfect as she thought it would be.
• Encounters on tropical islands left Zsolt Pinke with an acute understanding of just how sensitive the environment is to outside influences. 
• After submitting a high-profile paper in grad school, Josefine Proll endures a period of terror when a new post-doc points out an error in her calculations in which she divides by zero — it’s the first major setback in her life.
