World PhD Students Summit on Climate Change 2023

On-Line, Tuesday 26th September 2023, 10:00 – 13:00 CEST

Organised by the International Climate Change Information and Research Programme, the European School of Sustainability Science and Research and the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme.

Rationale

The PhD students currently working on matters related to climate change will be the ones leading future trends in a 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 work 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 Summit on Climate Change 2023 is being organised. This is a yearly event, the first of which was held online in 2022.

Aims of the event

The aims of the World PhD Students Summit on Climate Change 2023 are:

i. to provide PhD students from around the world with an opportunity to display and present their works as they relate to climate change mitigation and adaptation;

ii. to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of PhD research projects;

iii. to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities for cooperation.

How to participate

Participation in the event is free of any charges and is open to a broad audience. In order to attend the World PhD Students Summit on Climate Change 2023, interested persons should register by 24th September 2023.

About the Organisers

The event is organised by the International Climate Change Information and Research Programme, the European School of Sustainability Science and Research, and the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme.

The World PhD Students Summit on Climate Change 2023 is chaired by Professor Walter Leal (HAW Hamburg & Manchester Metropolitan University), supported by a team of international experts.
