Aim and content
The NeuroGrad Winter School is designed to stimulate networking between PhD students affiliated with the graduate program in neurosciences (NeuroGrad) at University of Copenhagen and networking between PhD students and senior researchers in neuroscience. It offers a chance for the PhD students to discuss their project with other PhD students and supervisors. Furthermore, the graduate students will obtain transferable skills relevant to the stage of progress of their PhD study and project.
- Special arrangements will ensure that participants attending the parallel course on neuronal signalling on the afternoon of January 11th will present their research projects and carry out their presentation evaluations in the first half of the day

For practical reasons, all applicants will be allocated on the waiting list until the deadline for application has passed. Thereafter participants will be allocated to the workshop designed for their study year on a first come-first serve basis.

The course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School). Special rules apply for research year students enrolled at Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH. All other participants must pay the course fee. Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at the Graduate School, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. After the enrolment deadline, available seats will be allocated to the waiting list.

Learning objectives
Student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1st year graduate students
a. Critically review abstracts and poster presentations
b. Reflect on oral presentations
c. Apply project management skills to their research project

2nd year graduate students
a. Present and discuss a scientific poster
b. Reflect on oral presentations
c. Apply poster presentation skills to their poster presentations

3rd year graduate students
a. Present at discuss their research project orally
b. Apply communication and presentation skills to oral presentations


Content
Day 1 consists of workshops of different skills relevant to the different stages of the graduate studies.
1st year students will attend the course on ‘project management in academia’
2nd year students will attend the course on ‘poster creation’
3rd year students will attend the course on ‘Communication and presentation in the academic context’
Graduate students affiliated with the graduate program in neuroscience participate in day 1.

Day 2 contains plenary lectures and presentations from the PhD students in the graduate program in neurosciences: 2nd year PhD students present their research projects on posters and 3rd year PhD students present their projects orally.
During day 2, plenary keynote speakers will give a lecture on broad topics relevant to PhD students in neurosciences. The keynote speakers for this year are:
Announced at a later time point
The oral- and poster presentations will be evaluated by committees headed by supervisors in the graduate program in neurosciences. Prizes to best oral presentations and best poster will be granted.
Day 2 is concluded by a dinner for all participants.
Graduate students and supervisors affiliated with the graduate program in neuroscience participate in day 2.
Participants
The course is intended for PhD students affiliated with the graduate program in Neuroscience

Language
English

Form
Mixture of plenary lectures, workshops, discussions, oral and poster presentations.
Preparation: An abstract of the project must be submitted by 2nd and 3rd year students. PhD students must prepare either an oral presentation (3rd year) or a poster (2nd year), or prepare to act as poster reviewers (1st year).
