Aim and content
This is a generic course. This means that the course is reserved for PhD students at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH. 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.

The course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD students at graduate schools in the other Nordic countries. All other participants must pay the course fee.

Please note that this course is similar to the Scientific Project Planning and Management 1 (SPP1) for MoMeD and DRA PhD students

Learning objectives
• To clarify the visions, goals, and risks of the PhD project
• To plan the PhD project using classical and agile approaches
• To manage time and tasks efficiently

In this training, young scientists will learn how a scientific project is planned - using classical and agile methods. They will clarify their motivation to start the scientific project. The students will establish their goals and envision the benefits of their project. They will analyse all potential stakeholders and assess possible risks they may encounter. Furthermore, they will learn to set priorities to manage themselves in an efficient way. At the end of the training they will have a detailed working map for achieving the next milestones.

The course is aimed at PhD students who have started their PhD within the previous 6 months.
