Applying for funding of doctoral education activities

If you are planning a doctoral education activity (for example a workshop, a seminar or a retreat) you may apply for co-funding by either a doctoral programme or the Course and Programme Committee.

Application for (co-)funding

Application for (co-)funding of doctoral education activities can be done in one of the following two ways:

  1. Application to the steering group(s) of doctoral education programme(s)
    Application for (co-)funding can be sent to the doctoral education programme(s) that has shown interest and has included the activity in its budget. It is recommended to contact the doctoral education programme(s) very well in advance of the planned activity. One should keep meetings of steering groups in mind.
    Note! Each programme will have its own procedure and deadlines for applications. More information including contact information can be found on the website of each programme.
     
  2. Application to the Course and Programme Committee
    The Committee for courses and programmes at doctoral level finances cross-cutting generic skills activities (e.g. project management workshops) and so called kappa seminars organised by others than the doctoral programmes. It is recommended to contact the coordinator for doctoral education for consultation very well in advance of the planned activity if you would like to organise doctoral education activities other than courses and want to apply for funding from the committee.

Funding for activities other than courses is provided only for KI doctoral students.

Arranging workshops or seminars related to the learning outcomes of doctoral education

During 2020 the Course and Programme Committee welcomes applications for funding regarding learning activities related to the learning outcomes of doctoral education. These can be arranged as workshops or seminars and need to be on a useful theme for many doctoral students and postdocs, that isn’t covered by our regular doctoral courses or programme activities. The purpose of the activities should be related to the learning outcomes of doctoral education, especially the ones that concern research integrity and interaction with society (number 6, 8, 9 and 10). It could for example be on a theme related to philosophy of science and medicine, ethics, artificial intelligence or visualisation techniques.


There is no specific deadline but the applications can be submitted throughout the year, well in advance to the planned activity.

 

Please use the application form for arranging doctoral education activities and submit it together with a budget showing the estimated costs you apply for. Our budget available for this kind of activities during 2020 is limited and an indication of the amounts granted is up to 5 000-10 000 SEK for a half-day activity.

How to apply

Please use application form provided when applying for funding from the Course and Programme Committee, or follow the procedure for the relevant doctoral programme.

If you apply for funding from a doctoral programme, please send the completed form, including enclosures, to the contact person for the doctoral programme in charge.

If you apply for funding from the Course and Programme Committee, please send completed form including enclosures to doctoralcourses@ki.se.

When to apply

Application for funding of doctoral education activities from the Course and Programme Committee can be submitted throughout the year, but well in advance of the activity.

If you apply for funding from a doctoral programme, contact the relevant programme.

Decision

The decision for funding from the Course and Programme Committee will normally be taken by the Chairman of the committee, who might first wish to consult with the committee members.

The decision for funding from a doctoral programme is taken by the relevant programme's steering group.

Once your application has been approved you can proceed with the announcement of the activity.
