Sustainability Science Summer School

Joint venture with the University Graduate College
Monday 24th June 2013 - 9:00am
PLACE, 33 Park Place, Cardiff

Hosted by the Sustainable Places Research Institute and the University Graduate College.

The Sustainable Places Research Institute is launching a new Sustainability Science Summer School during 24th - 28th June 2013.

The Summer School, a joint venture with the University Graduate College, will provide a unique and high quality research training forum for interdisciplinary doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in the field of sustainability science and place-making. 

It will give PhD students exposure to high quality research being conducted on sustainability from across the sciences, the opportunity to learn from these research experiences and practices and to share common experiences in both researching and writing work which can lead to high quality outputs and dissemination outlets.  It aims to serve a wide range of student interests and career plans not just those that consider themselves to be working in the field of sustainability. 

We hope that the week will also provide an interdisciplinary forum for researchers to exchange their ideas, plans and needs in their fields.  Allowing for the opportunity to discuss the opportunities and challenges for achieving a more joined-up approach to improving the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of society, and how to develop a more integrated approach to stakeholder engagement.
