Bergen Summer Research School

Global challenges
affect us all. Join us next summer for a cross-disciplinary research school exploring some of the most pressing challenges facing our world.

Shaped by some of Bergen's best research groups, every year the BSRS raises some pressing development issues.

June 12-22, 2017 at the University of Bergen

Six disciplinary courses will next summer focus on migration, the role of higher education, global health, water management, poverty, and the impact language has on global challenges.

The courses will be tied together by common sessions on research tools, writing and presentation skills, joint keynotes by high-profile researchers, plenary discussions, and an excursion into the Norwegian waterscape.

Application deadline is March 1, 2017.
