Rationales for stakeholder involvement in transdisciplinary research
In theory and practice different reasons exist to involve stakeholders in research processes. Being clear about objectives of stakeholder participation allows project managers to be more focused in their stakeholder strategy. Participants will learn a systematic approach to become aware of these objectives.

Establishment of global scenarios and identification of their local relevance
Ecosystem services are a major contributor to sustainable human well-being. Between 1997 and 2011, it has been estimated that the global value of these services has decreased by $20 trillion/yr due to land use change (Costanza et al. 2014). In this study, we evaluate the future value of global ecosystem services under four alternative land use scenarios to the year 2050.
