LERU is a network of 23 leading research-intensive universities based in 12 countries around Europe. Founded in 2002, LERU advocates education through an awareness of the frontiers of human understanding; the creation of new knowledge through basic research, which is the ultimate source of innovation in society; and the promotion of research across a broad front in partnership with industry and society at large. 

The Heidelberg LERU Doctoral Summer School will bring together doctoral students from LERU universities, scientists and scholars of Heidelberg university and external speakers, to share expertise and experience with scientific practices of a science of intervention. The theme for this year’s summer school is “Concepts of Intervention Science Applied to Global Challenges”. The aim of the summer school is to equip the next generation of scientists with understanding of main concepts and methods of intervention science and applying them to the converging global challenges: climate change, pandemics, and societal injustice.
