Scientists with a cause

Scientists With A Cause is a podcast of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in which you discover the contribution of our scientists to the Sustainable Development Goals. These are 17 goals set by the United Nations to lead our planet and its inhabitants towards sustainability, and away from poverty and climate change. How do our scientists go about this and what actually happens behind the walls of the VUB? You will hear the scientists about their research, their vision, the solutions they strive for and about why this is important for your life and our future.
