PhD Day – June 14 2022

The International Sustainable Development Research Society (ISDRS) welcomes early career researchers, including doctoral and master students, to participate and present their work during the PhD day on June 14, 2022 (the day before the main conference starts).

The PhD day aims to support early career researchers working on sustainable development-related topics by providing them mentoring and peer networks. The PhD day will reflect this year´s conference themes: culture, art, human rights, and courage. Hence, in addition to the traditional PhD workshop, several sessions will expose participants to cross-disciplinary forms of knowing and expressing. A detailed program will be available before the conference.

How to apply

Any early career researcher attending the 28th ISDRS Conference, whose abstract was accepted and has paid the conference fee, is welcome to register for and participate in the PhD workshops held during the PhD Day, which will be in-person in Stockholm and online.
