Eline Hutter

Eline Hutter is an associate professor at Utrecht University. It fascinates her how much energy is provided by (sun-)light, and she is curious to find out how we can use the interactions between materials and light to e.g. store solar energy, initiate chemical reactions or understand fundamental properties of materials or reactions. Her research focuses on using advanced spectroscopic and structural characterization to investigate the relationship between the optoelectronic and structural properties of materials and their activity and selectivity as photocatalysts. Her long-term research goal is to understand which non-toxic materials have the potential to use the energy from sun- or indoor light to generate electricity or deplete air pollutants such as CO2 or pathogens. These materials could then be used to add unique functionalities to surfaces.

René Verburg

René Verburg werkt sinds 2015 als universitair docent bij de Energy and Resources groep van het Copernicus Instituut. Zijn onderzoek omvat multidisciplinaire invalshoeken in de studie naar het behoud van biodiversiteit en ecosysteemdiensten in verschillende biomen en regio's, met speciale aandacht voor de tropen (regenwouden) en Nederland. Hiervoor gebruikt hij het concept van Forest Transitions; processen op landschapschaal die moeten leiden tot herstel van gedegenereerde en gefragmenteerde natuurlijke ecosystemen (bossen). Hiervoor onderzoekt hij naast mechanismen die herstel kunnen belemmeren ook beleid en gedragsveranderingen van actoren die herstel kunnen stimuleren. Omdat landbouw een grote invloed heeft op dit herstel, onderzoekt hij systemische transities binnen conventionele landbouwpraktijken naar duurzamere vormen van landbouw die verlies van biodiversiteit beperken en ecosysteemdiensten kunnen leveren.
