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.
The role of universities in promoting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and a sustainable development (including reaching the Paris Agreement goals) is crucial for our future. Universities are however embedded institutions; shaped by the societies they have been historically evolving within, and thus, also influencing these societies in a variety of ways.
In the same way we talk of varieties of capitalism, we may also talk of varieties of knowledge societies. And due to this, we also see a variety of ways that knowledge may contribute to the implementation of the SDGs, and of the ways the SDGs may influence knowledge institutions.
The Varieties of Knowledge Societies and the SDGs programme offered by the University of Bergen will reflect on these varieties and our future ability to deal with the burning issues of the SDGs and the Paris Agreement within knowledge society relationships.
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:
