BSRS 2017: Global Challenges
This summer, we will take on some of the most pressing global challenges, from migration, higher education, and global health, to water management, poverty, and the use of language.
The annual Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS) is an interdisciplinary venue for exploring some of the greatest challenges of our time. Around one hundred PhD candidates, researchers and policy makers from around the world will gather in Bergen from 12-22 June, 2017.
Watch the opening keynote by Professor Lise Rakner.
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.
BSRS seeks to create a unique environment for the participants to present, engage, discuss, progress their thinking, and improve on their work.
This is the tenth summer Bergen organizes this cross-disciplinary PhD-level summer research school on global challenges.
Bergen Summer Research School is a joint effort by the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, Chr. Michelsen Institute, NHH Norwegian School of Economics, Uni Research, and the University of Bergen.
