General information

Water, Climate and Society is the overarching theme for next summer’s Bergen Summer Research School, with Professor Terje Tvedt as scientific leader.

From June 13-24, 2016, some of the top international experts on water will gather in Bergen to create a multidisciplinary venue for exploring water as a global challenge.

Seven parallel three-day courses will span disciplines within natural sciences, health disciplines, social sciences and the humanities. In addition there will be a series of plenary sessions. We will also visit the waterscape of western Norway to see how people tamed the power of water, how it shaped society, and the effect climate change has on one of Norway’s biggest glaciers.

The annual multidisciplinary research school attracts PhD students and junior researchers from all over the world, working on some of the greatest challenges of our time.
