Applications are open for Boysen-TU Dresden Summer School 2021. The Technical University of Dresden and the Boysen – TUD – Research Training Group calls you to the 1st Mobility in Transition Summer School. It will be an academic space for MSc students, PhD students and young professionals. It is the forum to discuss challenges arising from the mobility transition, the disruptive technologies driving it and the role of society.
Mobility is in transition. Today’s mobility of people and goods is undergoing a fundamental and long-term change: While many countries worldwide shift away from the traditional car-friendly paradigm to promote sustainable transport such as cycling, walking, and public transport, there is also a push towards the electrification of motorized vehicles and the search for alternative engine technologies across the automotive industry. Which challenges stem from the mobility transition? Which disruptive technologies and innovations drive the mobility transition? Which technological and societal solutions on an international scale should be pursued to foster the mobility transition?
Applications are open for the 2021 SDG Fellowship in Germany – Fully Funded. The deadline of the application is 31st May 2021 and is open to all nationalities.
Through this fellowship program, tenured faculty (in the rank of professor) at the University of Bonn can invite international postdoctoral fellows for a joint research project on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as set forth by the United Nations in its Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. The scientists should research and teach together with a professor from the University of Bonn for one or two semesters.
The University of Bonn currently has a large number of collaborations with universities and research institutes in Africa, Asia and Latin America. As shown by the SDG index, implementing the Sustainable Development Goals poses considerable challenges for many countries in these regions. Based on the 17th Sustainable Development Goal, “Partnerships for the Goals,” researchers in the above-mentioned regions are given preference for the Bonn SDG Fellowships. The goal is to support talented researchers and build and strengthen networks through them.
