For Supervisiors

The overall aim of the research school is to build capacity in global health research and strengthen the quality of PhD-training in low-and middle-income countries. In this seminar, we will focus on the supervisor role by covering a broad range of relevant topics:

  • various approaches to research supervision

The seminar will also be a valuable opportunity to share experiences, questions and discussion points on current challenges as supervisor and to build academic competence and expand your research network, for details see attached programme. The seminar is only open to those with personal invitation.
