BUP PhD Students Training 2022

2022-06-21

The BUP announces the 2022 PhD Students Training that will take place 23-27 November 2022 at Lodz University of Technology, Poland. The participants will have different nationalities and academic backgrounds: Engineering, Social Sciences/Humanities and of Life Sciences/Environmental Sciences. The program of the training includes: lectures, workshops, students’ presentations of PhD work, individual consultancies of PhD work with international experts.

The objective is to give PhD students from BUP participating universities the possibility to meet and discuss scientific problems with focus on sustainable development in an interdisciplinary, international, multicultural, and regional context. In this way, students will also get the opportunity to become acquainted with other universities and their scientific traditions. The training program will be based on an interdisciplinary approach.

This international training will enrich the students’ own perspectives on sustainable development with experiences and perspectives from other disciplines and other countries. The training will thus serve as a platform for the development of a common understanding of the regional problematique and open avenues for future cooperation on these issues. Interdisciplinary training at the PhD-level is essential for creating an understanding between scientists and researchers with different backgrounds (Western and Eastern European cultures), and for future collaboration for a sustainable future.

PhD students will be offered training in interdisciplinary research cooperation with the guidance of an international group of interdisciplinary research experts, composed of senior scientists.
