OYY's executive board meeting on the 14th of Dec 2021

There are four Doctoral Training Committees in the University of Oulu Graduate School: Human Sciences, Technology and Natural Sciences, Health and Biosciences and Technology and Electrical Engineering. The Doctoral Training Committees direct, develop and evaluate the activities of the doctoral degree programs in the specific fields of the Committee. The Committees e.g. assess admission applications, doctoral training plans and final PhD theses. Additionally the Committees are also responsible for organizing field-specific doctoral training. The doctoral researcher members in the Committees are important advocates for doctoral researchers when planning their education. The Committees meet approximately once a month. Members can get study credits (1 cr. / year, max. 4 years) and they are paid an attendance allowance (41,20€ per participated meeting / 2021) if they're not staff of the University of Oulu.

All doctoral researcher representatives, OYY’s academic affairs specialist and other participants gather in the Doctoral Researchers’ Section approximately once a month. The goal of the section is to influence the development of doctoral research and promote equal rights and well-being for doctoral researchers. The section is open to all interested parties.
