Cambridge Global Challenges


The last In Search of ‘Good’ Energy Policy seminar of Easter term will consist of a talk given by Professor Liz Varga, Cranfield School of Management on WEF – water energy food policy: supporting the diffusion of anaerobic digestion, with a response by Dr Pablo Salas, C-EENRG, University of Cambridge.

The speaker will present for around 30 minutes, followed by the respondent and then a Q&A session with the audience members.

 A sandwich lunch is provided from 12-12.30pm before the seminar begins, which is open to all and no registration is required. If you are unable to attend the talk feel free to drop by for the lunch and meet the speaker. You can also send in your comments and questions to be posed to the speaker in advance.


 The seminar is part of the In Search of 'Good' Energy Policy Research Group which focuses on energy policy from an interdisciplinary perspective. What constitutes a ‘good’ policy is conditioned not only by technology and financial factors but also by social norms and values, institutions, geopolitics, public trust and history. The seminar series explores energy policy themes from different disciplinary perspectives - economics, history, philosophy, theology, politics, law, anthropology, psychology, engineering - with the aim of identifying principles and processes for ‘good’ energy policy making.
