Research questions

Hans Sloterdijk is focusing on the sustainable management of human activities affecting marine ecosystems. He works in partnership with scientist of different fields, policy-makers, and local stakeholders to generate knowledge that promotes food security and positive sustainable changes.

  • How can science be communicated to stakeholders and research questions developed together with stakeholders?

  • What are the patterns of spatiotemporal configuration of ecosystem service flows in tele-coupled socio-ecological systems?

  • How to contextualize Shared Socio-economic Pathways into fisheries scenarios and how to translate scenario outcomes into relevant indicators and reference points for end-users to support decision making in fisheries management?
