In order to enhance resilience and anti-fragility of research activities, it is also necessary to reduce negative impact and implement actions that would transform daily practices of the Alliance, and eliminate and replace unsustainable activities and research practices.

This task will be organised around a Pilot action driven by UBO that aims to estimate the Carbon footprint of research activities within the university. The methodology will be shared and tools used for this action presented to European colleagues. It will serve as the basis of a position paper of the SEA-EU Alliance on the footprint of R&I activities and the way we need to collectively rethink these in the context of sustainability and anti- fragility. In this scenario, multiple options present themselves: greening of campuses, sustainable practices in research (such as reduction of air travel), reducing the environmental footprint of research activities (such as: eliminate waste, buy better and use less), cutting-edge innovation, etc.
