To kick off the advocacy work for 2020, HYVÄT organized an introductory seminar for the newly elected PhD representatives at thesteering groups od Doctoral Programmes, Schools and a few other boards of the university.
Krista Longi (Doctoral Programme steering group, DOCS/DONASCI)
Unfortunately we did not record the conversation, but to summarize, the take-home message was that the representatives should seek to communicate with each other and with the people they represent as mych as possible – both in formal meetings and in informal corridoor discussions.
The panel discussion was followed by the newly elected representative in the Steering Group of Doctoral Education, Joni Ollonen stating his goals for the election period: Joni_Ollonen_Goals_for_this_2-year_period
And finally, the representatives were grouped by their Doctoral School in order to discuss their possible common goals and ways of communication.
HYVÄT has awarded the prize for the best PhD supervisor at the university in 2019 to professor Petri Luomanen. Luomanen was selected by the small committee of HYVÄT based on more than 30 proposals that we received over the summer and early autumn. You can read the proposal below.
HYVÄT’s next board will be nominated in the Autumn General Meeting on Tue 26th of November, 18:00-19:00 @ Kattosauna Sivistys (Leppäsuonkatu 11, 3rd floor).
