Other activities

Doctoral students attend seminars and workshops that are either internal (organised by research groups associated with the programme) or external. External seminars and workshops are organised by other doctoral programmes or institutions which conduct research on topics that are aligned with the programme and may be of interest to students. Research group seminars focus on topics of interest to students enrolled in the doctoral programme.

Seminars usually run for two hours and workshops for at least one day. It is anticipated that at least six of these activities will be held each year.

There is generally no mobility dimension to this activity: most workshops and seminars are held at the UPC.
