The ninth and final STEPS Summer School on Pathways to Sustainability will take place on 11-22 May 2020.
Applications for the Summer School are open now. The deadline for applications is 26 January 2020.
Who should apply?
Applications are invited from highly-motivated doctoral and postdoctoral researchers working in fields around development studies, science and technology studies, innovation and policy studies, and interested in transdisciplinary methods and the politics of the environment.
There is a fee to attend, but a small number of bursaries are available to applicants whose country of origin is not in the OECD – including those who are currently working/studying in OECD countries. Fee reductions are also available for those studying on the Sussex University campus, and those who are enrolled in a studentship or post-doctoral fellowship in the ESRC’s SeNSS (South East Network for Social Sciences). See the brochure for more details.
