Being a PhD Supervisor at Simula
Internal seminar by the Simula School of Research and Innovation
The Simula School of Research and Innovation (SSRI) invites you to an internal seminar to discuss and clarify the role of the supervisor at Simula, as explained in the chapter on being a supervisor in the SSRI guide. The purpose of this seminar is to raise the awareness of the supervisor’s responsibility to provide the students with the best possible environment to succeed with a PhD.
Our main goal is that Simula offers internationally recognized top quality research education, and we will strive to ensure successful PhD projects, both with respect to quality and time.
If you plan to participate in the seminar, please register by 24 August 2009, using the registration form.
