Main content

This summer, we take on some of the biggest global challenges, from health and cultural heritage in a digital age, to ecology and ethics, food security, and rights as political tools.

The annual Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS) is an interdisciplinary venue for exploring some of the greatest challenges of our time. About one hundred PhD candidates, researchers and policy makers from around the world will gather in Bergen from 11-21 June, 2018.

The application deadline was 21 February 2018

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.

Courses next summer:

Image, Ecology, Ethics

Gender based violence: Rights as governance mechanisms and political tools
