Nordic/Baltic collaboration on doctoral studies, open discussion

Time: Monday 15th June, 17.00 – 18.30

Venue: the icebreaker Suur Tõll seminar room, Vesilennuki 6 Tallinn

This is an attempt to find ways of collaborating on doctoral courses and other activities for doctoral candidates. Geography is a strong and well established, but relatively small discipline in the Nordic/Baltic context. In order to create high quality courses and other activities that creates an identity to geography as a discipline and that help to develop geography, we propose more collaboration between Nordic and Baltic countries. In this session that takes place just before the reception that marks the opening of the Nordic Geography Meeting in Tallinn we invite you to a meeting where we introduce the idea of a joint Nordic PhD course as well as to discuss other ways in which we could extend our collaboration on doctoral studies in geography.

The meeting is sponsored by the Norwegian Researcher School in Geography (https://www.ntnu.edu/nrsg), contact Cathrine Brun, Department of Geography, Cathrine.brun....at....svt.ntnu.no
