Eötvös Loránd University (Hungary) Innovative CHARM-EU Master’s Programme Featured in Nature

CHARM-EU joint Master’s Global Challenges for Sustainability is featured in the latest issue of Nature, the world’s leading multidisciplinary science journal. The correspondence emphasizes the importance of transdisciplinary training for tackling future challenges.

“Rapid and equitable global change means that students in a wide range of disciplines must learn to synergize with researchers, international partners and extra-academic stakeholders” – CHARM-EU colleagues and authors of the article, including Katalin Felvinczi, professor at ELTE’s Faculty of Education and Psychology and coordinator of the Life and Health track of the CHARM-EU Master’s programme emphasize.

The correspondence titled “Linked research hubs train students to tackle societal challenges” focuses on how CHARM-EU’s joint degree programme Global Challenges for Sustainability prepares students for transdisciplinary collaboration and creative problem-solving. Students participating in the programme learn within an international network of research hubs comprising local scientists, experts and stakeholders. With the help and input of these research hubs, students can frame and research complex issues such as how to deal with future pandemics and gain skills crucial to deal with the challenges of the future.
