> Info and how to apply


The summer schools are workshops for phd students that takes place every second year and serves several purposes:

  • The summer schools introduce areas of reflection, theory and design that typically will be regarded as too marginal to be a part of the Ph.d. curriculum at a design faculty.
  • The summer schools provide a common ground for Nordic PhD students to meet, learn from one another and provide the basis for both formal and informal research programs and projects.
  • The summer schools will share thematic similarities with the coming conference. On this basis the summer school aid the students in developingpapers suitable for publication at the conference.
  • The summer schools also provide a platform for the exchange of knowledge between people responsible for ph.d. programs in the various nordic countries. It is the ambition of Nordes that the summer schools will develop into world class design research courses that are applicable for the PhD programs in the nordic countries and beyond.
