From Howaida Faisal Abdelrahman, Administrative Coordinator Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS):

At the unit of Global Challenges, this year the Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS) is dedicated to actionable knowledge and focusing on How can your research contribute to solving global challenges?

The BSRS 2020 explores the interfaces between science, society and global challenges. Six parallel courses will focus on key global challenges, including climate governance, sustainable cities, sustainable oceans, media & democracy, global food systems, and migrant health.

Scientific Director for BSRS 2020 is Professor Håvard Haarstad, Centre for Climate and Energy Transformation (CET), Department of Geography, UiB. Due to the current pandemic for the COVID-19 and the travel restrictions in Norway, the BSRS will take place virtually during the period 8th– 18th June 2020 during Norway working hours. Around 100 candidates are expected to join virtually.
