Course – Societal Relevance of your PhD Research

May 13, 2021 12.00 - 17.00 h

Objectives
General: help PhD students to understand and describe the social (including policy) relevance of the results of their PhD thesis.

Specific:

  • To gain insights into the (policy and wider societal relevant) impacts of the transport system;
  • To gain insights into the determinants for the impacts of the transport system;
  • To gain insights into the relevance of the PhD Students’ own research for society and policy.

Prerequisite
No specific requirements. PhD students in their final year might benefit most from the course because they probably need to report on the societal relevance of their work in their thesis. But all PhDs are welcome. The course can even provide inspiration to recently started PhD students who write their research proposal.

Please find more detailed information on the course program in the attache document below.
