How can your research contribute to solving global challenges?
How do you design, conduct and communicate research to stimulate social change? And how do you create actionable knowledge?

June 8-18, 2020 at the University of Bergen

BSRS 2020 explores the interfaces between science, society and politics. Six parallel courses will focus on key global challenges, including climate change, energy transition, sustainable oceans, media & democracy, global food systems, and migrant health. Together with cross-cutting keynotes and social events, the courses will help 100 PhD candidates to develop skills to create actionable knowledge.

We open for applications November 1, with deadline February 1, 2020
