The ESRC STEPS Centre invites applications for its 2018 Summer School, which will take place from 14-25 May.
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 across agricultural, health, water or energy issues.
Participants will explore the theme of pathways to sustainability through a mixture of workshops, lectures, outdoor events and focused interaction with STEPS Centre members. The Summer School takes place at the Institute of Development Studies on the Sussex University campus, near Brighton, UK.
Kate Raworth, author of the bestseller Doughnut Economics, will give this year’s Annual Lecture as part of the Summer School.
The deadline for applications is 28 January 2018 at 17.00 GMT. There is a fee to attend, but scholarships are available. For details of how to apply, financial support, programme information, and materials from last year’s event, visit the STEPS website:
