Actionable knowledge to meet global challenges
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?
The annual Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS) is an interdisciplinary venue for PhD candidates who want to explore some of the greatest challenges of our time. Next summer we will look at the interfaces between science, society and global challenges.
Will you join us in Bergen, Norway, from 8-18 June, 2020?
Six parallel courses will explore key global challenges, including climate governance, sustainable cities, sustainable oceans, media & democracy, 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.
Application deadline: 15 February 2020 (deadline extended)
Our courses next summer:
Cities in climate and energy transformations
Sustainable development of life below water
This course has been postponed until 2021
Bergen Summer Research School is a joint effort by the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, Chr. Michelsen Institute, NHH Norwegian School of Economics, NORCE Norwegian Research Centre AS, and the University of Bergen.
