LEAP Researchers is a program offered by Oikos International with Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) for the joint personal and professional development of early career researchers – Masters and PhD students and post-doctoral researchers addressing sustainability challenges.
The program is aimed at Masters and PhD students, or post-doctoral researchers who address sustainability challenges in their research and/or teaching and have a high motivation to develop personally and professionally. Furthermore, this opportunity aims to seek out individuals with the intrinsic motivation to improve their own understanding of creativity and pedagogy towards the overall pursuit of sustainable development. The vision of an economic system that respects ecosystem limits and serves society should be close to participants’ minds and hearts. The majority of participants will have an economics and/or business background; however, participants from other fields are also welcome – diversity in knowledge and experience has been highly appreciated by the previous participants. Therefore, we open the program to participants from other disciplines and to more senior participants. Participation is free of charge.
