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