for global development challenges
Academic institutions are the backbones of society, providing knowledge and educating young people. Global development challenges affect us all, rich as well as poorer countries.
However, as inequalities continue to grow, it is a responsibility for advanced economies and their academic institutions to invest and share their resources and research results. The Bergen academic milieu is committed to rethink the implications of Norway’s position in the world today, emphasizing themes and research that our institutions are already engaged with.
Bergen Summer Research School has focused on the following overarching themes:
- 2008: Global Poverty
- 2009: Climate, Environment and Energy
- 2010: Global Health
- 2011: Norms, Values, Language and Culture
- 2012: Transnational Migration and Global Development
- 2013: Food as a Global Development Challenge
- 2014: Governance to meet Global Challenges
Bergen Summer Research School 2013 is entering a new phase as part of a priority of the University of Bergen´s new Strategic Plan for 2011-2015, which prioritizes high quality research education with emphasis on developing and strengthening thematic areas, across disciplines, to meet global challenges.
The Bergen Summer Research School is a joint venture under the leadership of the University of Bergen with the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration, Bergen University College, Chr. Michelsen Institute and UniResearch.
