AESOP PhD Workshop

PhD Workshop is an annual event for 30-40 PhD students from AESOP member schools exclusively. Guided by high level academic tutors, they share research ideas, findings and concerns in an informal atmosphere.

AESOP PhD Workshop is linked to the AESOP Annual Congress. It is usually organised just before the Congress. Students invited to attend PhD Workshop can enjoy complimentary registration to the Congress.

Recently more than 100 applications are submitted. The selection is made on the basis of the scientific quality of the application and relevance to the topic of the PhD Workshop.


In 2017, the AESOP PhD Workshop took place in Aveiro, Portugal.

In 2018, the AESOP PhD Workshop will take place in Karlskrona, Sweden, from 5 to 8 of July.
