Focusing on multidisciplinary dialogues between the different study fields of Health and Wellbeing, Technology, and Environment, the aim of the summer school is to encourage the participants to communicate across science fields and to examine connections between their own and other disciplines at various scales. In addition, during the course summer school participants will hear from teachers and scientific experts about relevant research methodologies, as well as multidisciplinary research ethics.
