Internal call for course funding proposals for the development of doctoral training activities in Health and Biosciences
The Health and Biosciences Doctoral Programme (HBS-DP) will allocate funding to be used during the year 2020 to organize doctoral training activities within the following Doctoral Degree Programmes: Medicine, Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine, Health Sciences, Dentistry, and Biology.
The proposed doctoral training activities may comprise e.g. field-specific courses, symposia, workshops or alike targeted mainly to doctoral students. Joint or methodological courses suitable for several disciplines and courses/events arranged in local, national or international cooperation are also applicable.
