GRIP is excited to collaborate with the annual Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS) 2022. BSRS is an interdisciplinary venue for PhD students who want to explore some of the greatest challenges of our time. This year the theme for BSRS is:
Understanding and addressing inequality;
Sustainability, social justice and hope.
There will be several public keynotes during BSRS, which can be accessed via zoom, including this keynote by Jason Hickel on June 7th: Jason Hickel: Capitalism, Inequality, and the Myth of Catch-Up Development – GRIP (gripinequality.org)
Six parallel disciplinary courses will focus on key global challenges, including climate change and mobility; governance and inequality; economic experiments in developing countries; higher education and the arts; food security; and gender, justice and environmental crises.
In addition, there will be special interdisciplinary sessions connecting the participants of the six PhD-courses around systems thinking and creative interdisciplinary problem-solving and project management.
Together with cross-cutting keynotesand virtual social events, the courses will help 100 PhD students develop skills to create actionable knowledge.
Due to the COVID pandemic and the persisting restrictions on international travel, BSRS 2022 will be organised as a virtual research school.
Scientific Director for BSRS 2022 is Professor Haldis Haukanes, Department of Health Promotion and Development, UiB.
