Green Labs Best Practice
The A4L_ACTIONS partners perceive the challenges associated with lowering environmental impact of research activities and consider “green lab” approaches for important aspects of research ethics. In order to raise environmental awareness, and gain initial insight into the environmental policies and practices of A4L_ACTIONS institutions, we performed a survey addressing basic principles of an environmentally-friendly behavior. Results of the survey are intended to be used to identify good practices as well as practices that need improvements, and propose trainings and strategies to implement necessary changes in a manner specific for individual A4L_ACTIONS partners. The implementation of the changes will be assessed by the end of the A4L_ACTIONS project by completion of the same survey and comparison of the results.
