Meet like-minded students studying poverty and sustainable development

oikos and UNDP have just announced the first Young Scholars Development Academy, which provides PhD students and young scholars working on poverty and sustainable development a platform to present and discuss their ongoing research projects with fellow students and senior faculty. The Academy is looking for researchers who are trying to understand poverty and development from a management or economics perspective — very similar to the Market-based Approaches to Reducing Poverty class that we are putting together again next year.

Sounds like a fantastic opportunity to network with fellow students and faculty, as well as apply insights and skills in a practitioner day with responAbility Social Investments from Zürich, Switzerland.  Scholarships covering travel, participation fee and housing are made available by UNDP’s Growing Inclusive Markets initiative.

Submission Deadline: September 15, 2009

Academy: December 6-11, 2009
