What are the requirements of active participation?

Accepted PhD students agree to participate in the research school during two years. This includes:

  1. active participation in at least three annual meetings (summer and winter). Each meeting is equivalent to approximately 1.5-2 days committment. Participation in all four annual meetings is welcomed and encouraged.
  2. completing the ClimBEco course Interdisciplinarity in environmental research (NMV001F).
  3. completing at least one additional course offered within ClimBEco.

Apart from these minimum requirements, it is up to the individual student to make the most of the ClimBEco time by, for example, participating in the mentoring programme, attending workshops and seminars, or suggesting additional events. All ClimBEco activities, besides PhD courses, are extra-curricular to one's ordinary research education. Once all requirements are fulfilled, PhD students are awarded a diploma and are recommended to receive 2 higher education credits for their active participation in ClimBEco.
