Course / training

On March 19 and 20, the first AIMMS PhD introduction course will be held. In this course you will get practical information on your PhD trajectory within AIMMS and the VU. In addition, you will meet the other recently-started PhD students, there will be some trainings on soft skills and we plan to organise a social activity.

The course will take place at an external location: Hotel Golfzang in Egmond aan Zee. One hotel night is included. The course is targeted at recently started PhD students. As this is the first edition, PhD students that have started since 1-1-2017  are invited. There are ~25 places and in case of over subscription we will give priority to PhD students for which an introduction course is most relevant/timely (therefore we ask you for a short motivation). If the course is successful (and of course we will do our best to make it successful!), we may organise it again.
