HERA (Higher Education & Research Awards for Future Generations), launched by The Foundation for Future Generations, the Rotthier Fund for Future Generations and their partners, is an award for excellence aimed at encouraging the academic world to further research into innovative solutions for a sustainable organisational structure for the planet and its populations. The third HERA Award Ceremony will take place on Wednesday the 6th of May 2015 in Louvain-la-Neuve (Reception and Poster Session from 18h, Prize Giving at 19h).
Due to difficult access to the submission page, the organizers have decided to extend the submission period until 15 December inclusive. As a reminder, the abstract should be submitted on the conference's website, menu "Congress" – submenu "Submission" (link: http://congrestransitiondurable.org/user/submit ). Creation of a user account is necessary and suggested on this page (click on "The account doesn't exist" if the account doesn't exist already). To contact the organisation, please write to: info@congrestransitiondurable.org .
