What are the requirements of active participation?
Accepted PhD students agree to actively participate in the research school during their two years. During this time, there are a minimum number of activities required to attend in order to fulfill the programme:
- The annual meetings (two per year), where supervisors are also encouraged to participate.
- The course "Interdisciplinarity in environmental research" at Lund University, 3 credits.
At least one additional ClimBEco course.
Apart from these minimum requirements, it is up to the individual to make the most of the ClimBEco time by, for example, participating in the mentoring programme and attending our workshops or seminars. All ClimBEco activities are extra-curricular to one's ordinary research education.
