We, as researchers, have an important role to play in the interface between science and policymaking. There is an urgent need to connect research to the 2030 Agenda. Next summer, we select 100 PhD candidates to discuss and explore science advice with some of the best international practitioners. BSRS 2019 offers a series of parallel multidisciplinary working groups with top international lecturers, and cutting-edge keynotes to help you make your research play a role for a sustainable future. The research school is tied together with common sessions on research tools, presentation skills, keynotes by high-profile researchers, plenary discussions, and an excursion into the Norwegian waterscape.

United Nations University, Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) The Pan African University Institute of Water and Energy Sciences (including Climate Change) (PAUWES), is a centre of excellence at the University of Tlemcen in Algeria. Called into existence by the African Union Commission in 2008, the Pan African University (PAU) is guided by the vision of an Africa managed by its own citizens and acting as a dynamic force in the international arena.
PAUWES offers two world class graduate programmes in which students address today’s most pressing development challenges. As secure water supply and innovative energy sources are of vital importance for the future of sustainable growth on the African continent, the institute is seeking a new generation of highly educated, well-trained students, who are committed to this goal.
The Master in Water and the Master in Energy programmes both offer a policy and an engineering track, awarding a joint degree from the Pan African University and the University of Tlemcen. Students are taught by renowned educators from African universities and the international academic community. They have access to state-of-the-art facilities, cutting-edge research and a distinguished faculty. Supported through cooperation with higher education and research institutions on the continent and beyond, the institute also benefits from a professional network of public, private and civil society actors.
UNU-EHS contributes to the development of ICT-based solutions to support the educational programme, social and professional networking among the online community of practice, and entrepreneurship and technology transfer.
School of International Development, University of East Anglia (DEV) Bringing together key strengths in water politics, climate change, agricultural water management and water allocation, this course will provide participants with an exceptional chance to acquire an understanding of this key global issue. The Water Security Research Centre (UEA) currently offers two professional training courses: Water Security for Policy Makers and Practitioners and Water Stewardship. The course introduces and explores different interpretations of water security in an international and developing economy context. Participants will acquire a wide variety of tools and analytical frameworks from a variety of disciplines and an extended understanding of this key national and global issue. They will leave the course with an ability to critically assess and address current water security issues and policies and to gain an appreciation of the relations between water security and development, health, climate, food, and national security. Participants will also substantially develop their networks and resource bases.
