BGG Doctoral Training Days
Doctoral Programme in Biology, Geography and Geology (BGG) is organizing the annual event "BGG Doctoral Training Day" on UTU Campus (Place will be published closer to the event) on 3 December, 2018. All doctoral candidates, staff members and researchers of Department of Biology and Department of Geography and Geology are welcome to join the seminar. Supervisors are especially encouraged to attend their own students' talks. The event will start at 9.15 by the welcoming words of BGG director Jon Brommer and invited speaker presentations. The afternoon program consists of student presentations. 

Program of last year:
BGG Training Day 2017

Information for doctoral candidates:

The BGG Doctoral Training Day provides an opportunity for BGG doctoral students to meet each other and share experiences about their doctoral studies and research. Each doctoral student gives a short presentation about their progress during last year, which qualifies the student to apply a grant from BGG (travel grants, grant for the finalizing a doctoral dissertation) during the year 2019. If student do not give a presentation during the BGG Doctoral Training Day, also filling the UTUGS progress report gives a right to apply grants. However, all students are encouraged to fill the electronic progress report in January, because this helps us monitor the progress and obstacles of PhD studies. For those who not attend the BGG day completion of the electronic feedback is mandatory.

Doctoral student presentations will be 5 min progress reports, where the main emphasis is given to the progress of the dissertation, not to research results or research aims (see attachment). We would like to hear the students elaborating on the positive and negative aspects of their work during the past year. We want to hear about their success and what has been good, but we also want to hear about problems. We want to find solutions to the problems. Each presentation will be followed by another 5 minutes for discussing the problems and possible answers. For the student presentations, the presenters will be randomly divided into groups. By doing this, we enable participants to learn about the process of doctoral dissertation in other sections and even other departments.  Attendance of the full program including presenting qualifies for 1 ECT.
