Internal call for course funding proposals for the development of doctoral training activities in Information Technology and Electrical Engineering
The Information Technology and Electrical Engineering Doctoral Programme (ITEE-DP) will allocate funding to be used during the year 2021 to organize doctoral training activities within the following Doctoral Degree Programmes: Computer Science and Engineering, Communications Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Information Processing Science.
The proposed doctoral training activities should be field-specific courses in the form of e.g. intensive courses, symposia, workshops or alike targeted to doctoral students. Joint or methodological courses suitable for several disciplines and courses/events arranged in local, national or international cooperation are also applicable. We would especially encourage applicants to plan multidisciplinary courses co-organized together with one or more of the other University of Oulu Doctoral Programmes (see http://www.oulu.fi/uniogs/dp).
Courses can also be organized 100% remotely depending on the Covid-19 situation.
Next call for the autumn term 2021 courses will be announced in May-June 2021.
The persons responsible for the proposals will be informed of the decisions as soon as possible.
