Graduate Student and Early Career SDGs online Workshop

Graduate Student and Early Career SDGs online Workshop

The RMIT EU Centre has announced a new workshop for graduate students and early career researchers aimed at making sense of the emerging place of the SDGs.

Universities themselves are increasingly focusing their attention on the SDGs. In 2018, the Times Higher Education World University Rankings introduced a new measurement based on the Goals, which aims to rank global universities’ success in delivering on SDG targets. Institutions across the world—including RMIT—are looking to the SDGs as a framework for teaching, research, engagement and impact.

The RMIT EU Centre and the Jean Monnet Sustainable Development Goals Network is delighted to announce a new workshop for graduate students and early career researchers (broadly defined) aimed at making sense of the emerging place of the SDGs in universities. The workshop will be held online on

Thursday, 22 October 2020 from 10am-1pm. Researchers interested in making the SDGs more central to their work are particularly encouraged to apply.

The workshop will address the ‘troubles and opportunities’ with SDG engagement and research. It will address the following issues:

Context: Institutional and Country

The troubles and opportunities for universities engaging with the SDGs

Methods: Measurement and the SDGs

The troubles and opportunities with a methodological focus on measurement.

Content: The Politics of SDG Research

The troubles and opportunities of engaging with the politics of the SDGs in our research.

Interested research students/early career researchers should send a 100-word summary of your research and a 100-word bio to emma.shortis@rmit.edu.au by Friday, 16 October 2020. Applicants will be notified of the outcome by Monday, 19 October.
