Science and Society towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
Bergen, 7-17 June 2021
Bergen Summer Research School 2021 will explore how the biosphere, the society and the economy can contribute towards strengthening the partnership for the sustainable development goals. Watch Associate Professor Katja Enberg introduce next year's courses.
Six parallel disciplinary courses will focus on key global challenges, including adolescent reproductive health, the internationalisation of higher education, socio-economic inequality, psychological and social science perspectives on climate change, the sustainable development of life below water, and the research, regulation and governance of corruption. In addition, there will be a special interdisciplinary course on PhD for innovation: from systems thinking through creative problem-solving to R&D management.
Together with cross-cutting keynotes and social events, the courses will help 100 PhD candidates develop skills to create actionable knowledge. The full programme will be presented here on 15 October. Application deadline is 1 February 2021.
