Transform4Europe invites PhD students to take part in the T4EU Week taking place from 20 to 24 May, organised by the University of Primorska in Koper (Slovenia) and the University of Trieste (Italy).

The event takes place under the theme ‘Beyond Borders’. Participants will have a chance to take up courses and receive ECTS credits and certificates with their completion:

  • Buildings design driven by new European Bauhaus – materials science, architecture, civil engineering,
  • Exploring methods for multicultural social science research in the contemporary era – social science disciplines,
  • Environmental genomics – biology, environmental sciences, bioinformatics,
  • Symmetry in graphs – mathematics, computer science,
  • Suicide without borders – psychology, public health, medicine, social work,
  • Collaborative innovation and design of solutions in tourism – tourism management, hospitality or related fields.

Find more details about the courses in the catalogue and at transform4europe.eu.

Note: Travel, food, and accommodation costs for 5 selected PhD students will be financed from the Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programme. Rules for financing the trip: €70 EUR per diem for 7 days = €490 for stay and accommodation (6 overnight stays – a possibility to have the hotel booked by the University of Silesia; the University organises a group coach trip).

The application form for USil PhD students is available on the website at formularze.us.edu.pl.

The number of participants is limited. The participants will be selected based on the assessment of applications for individual courses. You can send your applications by 15 March 2024. Priority is given to people who have not yet participated in T4EU Week trips to partner universities.

Moreover, the universities organising the event are responsible for assigning PhD students to modules; they also reserve the right to make necessary changes (e.g. if there is an insufficient number of participants for a given course, it will not be launched).

The selected people will be qualified for the trip taking place on 19–25 May 2024; the participants depart as one group. There is no possibility of making the stay shorter or longer and departing from or arriving at a different location than the rest of the group.

In case you have any questions, feel free to contact the Transform4Europe Office at transform4europe@us.edu.pl.
