A two-week thematic summer school across Europe

Join a community of change-makers and share your knowledge and skills to develop solutions to climate change issues.

Our two-week Summer Schools have climate-related topics and take place in different European locations. Connecting PhD students from around the globe, the Catapults are hubs for new ideas with interdisciplinary approaches.

Combining knowledge from various disciplines, new skills are acquired and innovative ideas brought to life. A combination of discussions with international academic experts and practitioners, creative transferable skills sessions, inspiring workshops, site visits and assignments create a unique learning experience for our students. In addition to the delivery of knowledge and skills, the programme is about connecting people and ideas.
