BUP 6th PhD Students TrainingInterdisciplinary-Multicultural-International
25-29 November 2018
Rogow, Poland

Deadline for applications: 17 September 2018

The objective is to give PhD students from the BUP network the possibility to meet and discuss scientific problems. The focus will be 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 program will enrich the students’ own perspectives on sustainable development with experiences and perspectives from other countries. At the same time it will 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 their future collaboration for a sustainable future.
