Future Earth Norway, Nord University and UiT The Arctic University of Norway invite PhD students working in fields relevant to healthy oceans and the sustainable utilization of resources to a week-long interdisciplinary PhD course in marine sustainability.

We start in Bodø with lectures, a field trip and side event. We then board the Hurtigruten for stakeholder dialogues with some stops along the way in the Lofoten Islands. We´ll finish in Tromsø with further lectures, group work and another side event.

Along the way participants will improve their understanding across disciplinary boundaries and explore ideas and research methodologies around pathways to the sustainable use of the ocean under global change. Leading lecturers will support participants to better integrate knowledge from the natural and social sciences into their research, and side events, stakeholder dialogues and practical training in co-production will equip participants to integrate different perspectives into their work.

27 February to 1 March: Nord University, Bodø
1 to 2 March: The Hurtigruten - Bodø to Tromsø
2 to 5 March: UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø
