The University of Bergen presents six parallel courses for PhD candidates and junior researchers. These disciplinary courses will be tied together by a series of common sessions such as keynotes and roundtables, so there will be ample opportunities to engage in critical analyses to seek creative solutions and to participate in open debates.
In its Agenda 2030, the United Nations defines the eradication of poverty in all its forms and dimensions as the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. The document defines climate change as the other great challenge of our time due to its effects on present and future generations and its unprecedented and disproportioned impact on the worlds poorest and most vulnerable.
The main objective of this Agenda 2030: Poverty, Climate Change and Sustainability course is to analyse these challenges and to provide PhD candidates with tools to address them. Transdisciplinary research (TDR) and more specifically, Sustainability Science, offer the possibility to address urgent societal problems focusing on the transition to sustainability.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
Upon acceptance, the participants will be asked to submit a short essay of 2-4 pages from their own research on a research question decided by each course leader. This will be used as the base for presenting your research to the rest of the course.
Participation at the Bergen Summer Research School will be credited under the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
Participants are expected to write an essay (in a form of a publishable manuscript of 10-20 pages) to be submitted after the end of the summer school. This will give a total of 10 ECTS. Deadline for submission will be decided your course leader.
It is also possible to participate without producing an essay. This will give you 3 ECTS.
The courses are designed for PhD level and are open to:
