Benefits

The research school is supported by a generous  grant from Vetenskapsrådet 2016-06301

Financing will largely go to the courses. To minimise the need for administration we will use a fixed financing for each course as described below. All reimbursements will be handled by your university who will have to send an invoice, see the invoicing address below.

We provide the following benefits including overhead

  • For teachers/organisers of courses, by board decision the dates and times for the start and end of the residential portion of your course, as well as the location (campus and city, not room number) must be set at least six months prior to course start. The students should then get a reminder or notification at least 2 months prior to course start. Any assignments should be announced one month prior to course start. Courses must include an examination — meaning any assignment that is graded (typically Pass/Fail). You will need to provide a course evaluation to the studierektor, along with a brief statement of your quality improvement plans for the next occasion. Please post the grade on Canvas at most 2 months after course completion, and make your Canvas page public (under CC license), prior to sending your invoice. You can get help from us doing this. We provide:
    • 125.000 SEK per course to cover teaching costs.
    • 25.000 SEK per course for social activities (lunches, dinners).
    • 25.000 SEK per course for invited international speakers.
  • For students
    • Free participation in all courses and workshops
    • Funds for travel to the courses and Annual Meeting, and lodging at the courses, paid to your home department. The precise amount depends on your home university location, see template invoices below.
  • For mentors
    • Free participation in the annual workshop
    • Support for traveling to workshops etc.
  • For University representatives
    • Free participation in the annual workshop
