STEPS Centre Summer School - University of Sussex, 11-22 May 2015


The STEPS Centre is now inviting applications to take part in its fourth annual Summer School.

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.

The deadline for applications is 5pm GMT on 28 January 2015. There is a fee to attend, but scholarships are available.

For details of how to apply, financial support, programme information, and materials from the last three years’ events, visit the STEPS website: www.steps-centre.org/summerschool
