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 on the Sussex University campus, near Brighton, UK. The deadline for applications is 27 January 2016 at 5pm GMT. There is a fee to attend, but scholarships are available.
