PhD pedagogical seminars: research autonomy

Image result for research

  • Are you a young researcher or a research student?
  • Would you like to make impact with your research and would like to know about opportunities and discuss the challenges?
  • Are you aiming big with your research, want to maximise its societal impact and its contribution to knowledge but a bit concerned with all short-term goals that you should demonstrate within your research group, research community and your financing agency?

We do not offer solution but at least we offer a forum, in term of seminar series, to bring your perspective and discuss it with us!

This time, we think we can touch on the issue, in the context of: “performance-based governance of academia: its impact on training of young researchers”. For that we bring you:

  •  Per Berglund, KTH vice dean of Faculty and chairperson of education committee (Faculty perspective)
  • Lars Geschwind, researcher on science and education policy at ITM school at KTH (Research perspective)
  • Gustav Notander, KTH Innovation (Entrepreneurship support/impact)

We’ll arramge the seminar as follows:

1. Introduction: 14:30, duration ~15 minutes (by Anders Broström and Tage Mohammadat)
2. Pitch talk: 14:45, duration ~40-60 minutes (by Per Berglund and Lars Geschwind)
3. Panel: 15:45-, duration: 45- minutes (moderated by Anders Broström)
4. Fika: for mingling, networking and informal discussions

Oh ya, here are some more practical info:

– When? March 7, 14:30-17:00
– Where? GrötenNymble​, Drottning Kristinas väg 15, 100 44 Stockholm
– Should You do anything before that? Ya, registration (confirmation of seats, and reminder).

Hope to see you there!

PhD Chapter Meetup on public speaking

Have you ever been on stage? Did you feel uncomfortable? Was it a confident delivery?

Most of us need to communicate our results to the audience at some stage of the PhD. How you deliver the speech is often more important than what you are talking about. If you are looking down, talking quietly and use filler words all the time – nobody will listen, even if you have done an amazing breakthrough!

Improving public speaking skills will increase your impact a lot!

The PhD Chapter invites you to our very first Meetup where our guest speaker Min’an Tan will lead an entertaining lecture about public speaking. The meeting will be held in T-Centralen, Drottning Kristinas Väg 29, on Tuesday November 28th at 18:00 (ending around 19:30).

Contact board [at] for more information.

Please, register here.
