Interdisciplinary - Multicultural - International

The PhD students training is an opportunity for PhD students to become better acquainted with other academic perspectives.

The 2021 PhD students training will take place 24-28 November 2021 at Lodz University of Technology in Lodz, Poland. We will admit 25 PhD students that during the training will be supported by an expert team. The participants will have different nationalities and academic backgrounds: Engineering, Social Sciences/Humanities and of Life Sciences/Environmental Sciences.

This year we plan for a physical meeting with the hope that the restrictions will be taken away. We will monitor the COVID situation closely and update the announcement accordingly and notify applicants about possible changes.

The program of the conference contains: lectures, workshops, students’ presentations of PhD work, individual consultancies of PhD work with international experts.

Objective of the training
The objective is to give PhD students from the BUP member countries 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.
