The ISSS2017 Vienna also served as a Platform for the next generation. Young scientists were invited to present their research projects, ideas and solutions to an audience of international specialists and stakeholders. More than 50 students participated in the conference. The PhD programm, organized in collaboration with the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU), was visited by 22 attendees.
The BCSSS would like to thank all speakers, participants, sponsors and partners and of course our host the Technical University of Vienna (TU Wien) for attending and supporting this remarkable event!
Together we succeeded in realizing the ISSS2017 Vienna idea to be a forum that bridges the gap between science and practice and to present the ISSS2017 Vienna main issue “From Science to Systemic Solutions. Systems Thinking for Everyone”.
