World PhD Students Sustainability Summit 2022On-Line, 8th March 2022Organised by the European School of Sustainability Science andResearch,  the Inter-University Sustainable Development ResearchProgramme and the European Alliance for Sustainability ResearchRationaleThe PhD students currently working on matters of sustainabledevelopment will be the ones leading future trends in 2030-2050scale, when they will occupy key roles in academia, industry and othersectors. It is therefore vital that they get the best possible training.One important component of this training is the interaction andexchange of information among their peers. Unfortunately,  many doctoralstudents work on their themes in an isolated manner, detached from otherinterdisciplinary groups. Also, they seldom have the opportunity topresent and discuss their works with international PhD students andexperts from outside their organisations. Yet,  much could be achievedby such an interaction. It is on the basis of the need to address thisgap, that the World PhD Students Sustainability Summit 2022 is beingorganised.
