The Doctoral programme in Public Health Science (PHSP) invites doctoral students to our Kappa seminar in September. The seminars are intended for you who plan to defend your thesis within 3–6 months. The seminars are held in English. 

The kappa seminars is meant to help you who are in the process of writing your kappa/cover story to put your thesis in a broader conceptual perspective, clarify how the articles forming the thesis relate to one another in this broader context, and elaborate on the content and organisation of the kappa.
