Course – Societal Relevance of your PhD Research

December 4, 2023 10.00 - 15.30h

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

More 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.

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.
