Bergen Summer Research School

Preview of "The future of water" by Terje Tvedt


The future of humankind will be shaped by the unruly element of water. Join us this summer for a cross-disciplinary research school on Water, Climate and Society. Scientific leader of Bergen Summer Research School 2016 is Professor Terje Tvedt.

Global challenges affect us all. 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.


Water, Climate & Society

June 13-24, 2016 at the University of Bergen

This year, BSRS offers seven parallel courses spanning all disciplines, a series of plenary sessions, and an exciting excursion into the unique Norwegian waterscape to explore the impact rivers, fjords and glaciers have on societies. We hope to provide the ideal backdrop for an interesting stay in Bergen and for stimulating cross-disciplinary discussions. BSRS offers a number of stipends and participation will be accredited with up to 10 ECTS.

General deadline for applications was March 1.
