Courses and workshops

The ClimBEco research school offers a number of courses and workshops each year, including both in-depth disciplinary as well as interdisciplinary curricula.

ClimBEco PhD courses generally hold the format of one intensive study week and are free of charge. The courses are open for all PhD students that meet the admission requirements, but priority will be given to PhD students participating in ClimBEco.

Costs for travel and accommodation in connection to participating in courses within the ClimBEco programme will be covered for PhD students currently enrolled in the research school.

To be eligible for support, active attendance on all mandatory activities within ClimBEco is required. If this criterion of active participation is not met, ClimBEco can deny the student support (i.e. course fee, travel and accommodation costs, etc).

Below you will find information on how to book travel and accommodation.
