The Doctoral Students Symposium is one of the University for Sustainability's initiatives. At the Symposium, participants present their research projects and engage on a range of topics grouped under an annual theme. Using a multidisciplinary approach, participants gain fresh perspectives and innovative ideas from peers from related or different fields of studies. These often give them new ways of addressing some of the most important issues or research questions in their respective fields of studies.
The Symposium aims to provide doctoral students with a platform to discuss their career aspirations and pathways within and outside academia and enhance their international experience by providing them with networking opportunities and a supportive venue for constructive peer critique of ongoing research efforts.
The University for Sustainability Prize for Excellence in Sustainable Development Research shall be established to honour those whose work has advanced knowledge by crossing disciplinary boundaries and recombining different specialised subject fields in their research or writing.
