PhD Seminar and PhD Network

(page latest update: September 2015)

→Visit the PhD Seminar section for details

The aim of the Seminar is to provide an international setting where doctoral students in PR and corporate communication can present their ongoing work, get feedback from experts and peers and establish a valuable network for the future.

The main focus of the Seminar will be on the work in progress of participants. A special focus will be on the several subjects, approaches and methods used in different universities. A variety of working activities will be organised to make the Seminar dynamic and inspiring.

Project leaders

This valuable project has been launched and conducted successfully for 9 years by Associate Professor Emeritus Inger Jensen, from Roskilde University in Denmark. From 2016 on, this project is lead by:

Project team members

The project is organised every year in collaboration with the University that organises the Euprera annual congress. In 2007 the first PhD seminar was organised with Roskilde University, Denmark. In 2008 it was in collaboration with IULM in Milan, Italy. In 2009 with University of Bucharest, Romania. In 2010 with University of Jyvaskyla, Finland. In 2011 with Leeds University,UK. In 2012 in collaboration with Istanbul University. In 2013 in collaboration with Ramon Llull University, Barcelona. In 2014 in collaboration with Université Catholique de Louvain. In 2015 in collaboration with BI Norwegian Business School, Oslo.

Overall timeline

The project started with the PhD seminar arranged in Roskilde in connection with the Euprera Congress 2007 and the plan is to organise a PhD seminar in Groningen/Amsterdam in conjunction with the EUPRERA annual congress.

Results until now

PhD seminars have been arranged in Roskilde 2007, Milan 2008, Bucharest 2009, Jyvaskyla 2010, Leeds 2011, Istanbul 2012, Barcelona 2013, Brussels 2014, Oslo 2015. At every seminar there has been very high spirit, very good presentations, in depth feedback and discussion among the participants and the expert facilitators. The interest seems to be growing in terms of numbers of participants and the variety of nationalities. In Jyvaskyla we had the special opportunity to invite two participants from former PhD seminars who are now doctors to join the seminar as guest facilitators. Beside the academic part of the work there has been time for fun and socialising with the result that participants spontaneously and by their own initiative keep in touch during their further work.

Resource planning

Euprera has calculated a budget for the seminar.

Can Euprera members still join the project?

Congress organisers are expected to support with expert facilitators and with practical organising.
