The project is largely based on various forms of collaboration. Different scientific disciplines, private and public organizations have the opportunity to continually give input to the project. The results from the workshops, the final conference and final report will be very largely based on the interaction between different disciplines and operations. The aim of collaborating within the project is to a maximum extent take advantage of different skills, which is vital as climate adaptation is inherently transdisciplinary and involves a variety of different sectors.

The project leaders are Elin Eriksson, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute and Anders Sandoff, University of Gothenburg.Our definition of Business Driven Sustainability: Collaboration processes for sustainable urban development to create solutions for environmental and social challenges and to create sustainable business opportunities and jobs.
