ClimBEco PhD courses

The ClimBEco Graduate Research School offers a number of PhD courses and workshops each year. Some are in-depth disciplinary while others are interdisciplinary.

Generally, ClimBEco PhD courses consist of one intensive study week. The courses are free of charge and open to all PhD students that meet the admission requirements, but priority will be given to the PhD students enrolled in the ClimBEco programme. Potential costs for travel and accommodation in connection to participating in ClimBEco courses can be covered for the PhD students who are enrolled and actively attending the ClimBEco programme.

Here is a document with the instruction on how to book travel and accommodation:

ClimBEco PhD courses, Autumn 2022

Statistical climatology

31 October 2022 - 15 January 2023, University of Gothenburg (7.5 ECTS)

This course will consist of two or three cases, i.e., scientific questions that we seek to answer. Scientific background material, in the form of links, summary texts, and lectures, will be provided to aid the analysis. Technical lectures (detailed or overviews) are available upon request. The class will be divided into groups, each of which do their own analysis. The intent is to have each group contain a broad spectrum of expertise.

Interdisciplinarity in environmental research

14-18 November, Lund University (3 ECTS)

This course gives an introduction in how interdisciplinary environmental research can be conducted. As a research area, environmental science is based on the notion that complex environmental problems typically demand an interdisciplinary approach to be holistically understood and potentially solved. In this context, interdisciplinarity denotes both collaborative efforts between scientific disciplines and between scientists and a variety of societal actors. During the course we will revise why interdisciplinary research across these dimensions is needed and how it can be pursued.

Science communication and role in society

21-25 November, Lund University (3 ECTS)

This course gives knowledge and understanding how effective science communication works and discusses the role of science in society. Through seminars, discussion groups, self-directed learning and project work, the course provides skills to condense and convey key messages clearly, to define target audiences for different types of communication and develops effective techniques to deliver and receive information through different channels. There will be preparatory tasks the week before the course begins and you will work full days during the course period.

ClimBEco PhD courses, Spring 2023

Particles and health

30 January - 2 February and 27 February - 3 March 2023, Lund University (6 ECTS)

The aim of the course is to mediate knowledge of how particles may affect human health. Particles of different origin such as atmospheric, indoor, workplace aerosols and engineered nanoparticles will be covered. The participants will learn how to assess exposures and effects of particles as well as relationships between particle properties and toxicological effects. The course will provide insight into the latest research in the field through lectures given by leading invited researchers.

Changing extremes - summer school

3-18 July 2023, Lund University (6 ECTS)

Introduction into the Arctic region and Svalbard. The students will prepare projects to be conducted on site. During field work at Svalbard, the course leaders will demonstrate the effects of global change in a high Artic permafrost environment and how they are evaluated during a number of excursions from Longyearbyen and from the Isfjord radio station.
