The Doctoral School recommends that you go abroad for your external research stay/collaboration. Going abroad and putting your research into a whole different context allows you to strengthen your international network and gain new perspectives on your research.
The main purpose of the stay should be to develope and further your research, develope new ideas in a new setting and of course to expand your network.
It is a requirement that you during your PhD Study have a form of external research collaboration.
Where to go and for how long?
The external research stay can compose of one long stay or a comibaton of several short stays (minimum duration of one month if you want financial support from the Doctoral School). Stays shorter than one month is also viable but you cannot receive financial support from the Doctoral School.
If you have questions in relation to the duration, contact your supervisors or Camilla Hvass Raun at AAU PhD. The location needs to have an active research environment - it can be both universities, organizations or other institutions.
