Another starting point for BSRS is Bergen’s place in the world, as an international trading port situated on the rim of enormous marine, water and petroleum resources, close to wild and untouched nature—all limited resources in need of stewardship for a sustainable future. Natural resources, health, poverty, migration, language and culture are some recurring themes of the expertise that are involved in the summer research school.
The Bergen Summer Research School is a partnership of NHH-Norwegian School of Economics, Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, Chr. Michelsen Institute, and Uni Research, under the leadership of University of Bergen. The five partner institutions all contribute towards critical analysis of power structures and promote a diversified and sustainable society. We all play our part in addressing global challenges and developing skills and initiative to promote a sustainable future. The Bergen Summer Research School is organized by UiB Global.
