The Doctoral programme in Public Health Science (PHSP) invites doctoral students to our Kappa seminar in October.

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. 

Dates for the seminars: 

  • 4 October, 9.00-16.30
  • 6 October, 13.00-16.00
  • 8 October, 9.30-12.30

About the seminars: It is a mix of plenary sessions, individual assignments, and group work, all being focused on each participant’s own thesis (kappa). The participants are encouraged to reflect on their own work, and they must provide other course participants with peer review on several occasions.
