Doctoral Colloquium

The 3IN doctoral colloquium is meant to be a support for Ph.D. students of Social Sciences. It provides a platform for a peer-to-peer network where Ph.D. students can support each other and tackle upcoming challenges and obstacles on the way towards their PhD together.

Both the structure and content are based on the needs of the participants.

How will 3IN Doctoral Colloquium work?

Doctoral colloquium will meet on a regular basis, e.g. once a quarter/semester with the following aims:

  • Ph.D. students to present their research topics and receive feedback.
  • Discussions on different topics, such as financial support, methods, time management, ethics, etc.
  • Ph.D. students can, for example, organize online writing workshops, in which the students agree to a certain time and date to meet virtually and to work and write on their own topics. Such initiatives help to stay motivated and committed

Join the 3IN Doctoral Colloquium!

As a first step, all interested participants will have a first informal online meeting to get to know each other. In this meeting, participants talk about expectations and personal wishes and needs.
