Bergen Summer Research School

Science and Society towards the Sustainable Development Goals. 

Bergen, 7-17 June 2021

This summer, we explored how the biosphere, the society and the economy can contribute towards strengthening the partnership for the sustainable development goals. Six parallel disciplinary courses spanned health, higher education, climate change, life below water, corruption and inequality. In addition, we had special interdisciplinary sessions on systems thinking and creative interdisciplinary problem-solving and project management.
