Since its launch in 2019, OSEH has aimed to stimulate experimental environmental research that asks innovative questions and seeks dialogue and collaboration across disciplinary divides, and beyond academia. One means to this goal has been through the funding of Collaboratories, where humanities scholars are supported to establish new research teams with scholars from other disciplines than their own.
