How would you frame your research to
make an impact on policies for a sustainable future?

We, as researchers, have an important role to play in the interface between science and policymaking. There is an urgent need to connect research to the 2030 Agenda. Next summer, we select 100 PhD candidates to discuss and explore science advice with some of the best international practitioners. 

BSRS 2019 offers a series of parallel multidisciplinary working groups with top international lecturers, and cutting-edge keynotes to help you make your research play a role for a sustainable future. The research school is tied together with common sessions on research tools, presentation skills, keynotes by high-profile researchers, plenary discussions, and an excursion into the Norwegian waterscape. Deadline for applications: 24 February, 2019
