Summer schools and research conferences for doctoral students

The U21 and LERU networks arrange summer schools and conferences for doctoral students. Current Lund University doctoral candidates (PhD students) apply through Lund University, which then nominates a limited number of candidates. Accepted students will partially be sponsored by Lund University, please see the PDF files below for more details.

LERU Doctoral Summer School

LERU Doctoral Summer School is organised annually and is hosted by one or more of the LERU members. The aim of the doctoral summer school is to provide doctoral candidates with professional and personal development opportunities. 

The theme of the summer school is of general professional development interest to doctoral candidates. By creating an international, intercultural and inter­disciplinary environment, the summer school provides a highly stimu­lating learning experience, which is of value to the participants’ future careers. 

The Summer school is to further strengthen ties within the network and to contribute to increasing the network’s reputation and influence in European policy setting in higher education. It is also a way to show that LERU universities are at the forefront of innovative practices in training new researchers.

Announcement for the LERU Doctoral Summer School 2020 will come in the beginning of 2020.
