World PhD Students Sustainability Summit 2022

This event, the first of its kind, aims to provide PhD students from around the world with an opportunity to present their works as they relate to sustainable development, and with a platform to exchange information, ideas and experiences, and explore possibilities for cooperation.


The PhD students currently working on matters of sustainable development will be the ones leading future trends in 2030-2050 scale, when they will occupy key roles in academia, industry and other sectors. It is therefore vital that they get the best possible training. One important component of this training is the interaction and exchange of information among their peers. Unfortunately,  many doctoral students work on their themes in an isolated manner, detached from other interdisciplinary groups. Also, they seldom have the opportunity to present and discuss their works with international PhD students and experts from outside their organisations. Yet,  much could be achieved by such an interaction. It is on the basis of the need to address this gap, that the World PhD Students Sustainability Summit 2022 is being organised by the European School of Sustainability Science and Research, the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme and the European Alliance for Sustainability Research,

Participation in the event is free of any charges and is open to doctoral students working on matters related to sustainable development, at both an early stage, and at an advanced stage of their work. In
order to take part in the World PhD Students Sustainability Summit 2022, interested persons should send an expression of interest. The deadline for submissions is 30th January 2022 (there is a limit on the number of presentations)
