What is the goal of the training program?

The main purpose of the Erasmus+ STT week on Planning and writing a PhD Thesis is to provide participants with the know-how needed to develop and implement an effective plan for preparing and defending the PhD thesis. The training will focus on identifying the most suitable tools for planning and monitoring academic progress, research methods and instruments, writing academic papers and getting published. Preparing a PhD thesis can be very challenging due to the limited research experience of the candidate, due to the struggle to bring to front something new and innovative; our purpose is to provide the participants with the know-how needed to transform the study period into a positive and rewarding experience. Participants will interact in a dynamic scenery, designed to foster dialogue and debate, being constantly challenged through tasks and case studies consisting of hypothetical scenarios.

 

Whom does it address?

Participants to the training should be PhD candidates with an English level of B1 or above, looking to develop and/or improve their skills in the research area, academic writing and presentation skills.  

 

How is the program structured?

The training program will take place in the lovely city of Timisoara, Romania. Timisoara is also known as little Vienna because of its habsburgic look and traces of the Austrian Empire. Timisoara was elected European Capital of Culture for 2021 because of its beauty, rich cultural life and peaceful blend of ethnic minorities. The training program will be divided into presentations and workshops combined with one-to-one coaching sessions. With a total duration of 25 hours, the classes will take place from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 3 pm. After completion, all participants will be awarded Erasmus+ Staff Mobility (STT) certificates. The training includes also a cultural component with the possibility to visit the Romanian village museum, a walking city tour and a traditional Romanian dinner.

 

Can the training be funded through Erasmus+ STT grants?

Yes, each participant can apply for a mobility grant within his/her institution. We will provide all the required documentation for the Erasmus+ STT grant applicants: invitation, training curricula and certificate of attendance.
