The eSRS will strive to partake in the organization of one summer school per year, working closely with the collaborators of the eSRS

PhD Courses

The eSRS will aim at hosting two annual PhD courses, mostly in the form of one week intensive teaching, based on lectures by invited speakers. The research focus of the PhD courses are guided by the school board. In addition to the courses hosted by the eSRS, PhD students are required to take the course Introduction to University Pedagogy (IUP) as well as Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). It is strongly recommended to take a course on scientific writing.

The network events will typically be focused on carreer opportunities for the eSRS PhD students, such as post doc funding, entrepreneurship, industrial research and likewise. The events will be centered around invited speakers and supplemented with a lunch or dinner arrangement.
