Peer Mentoring

 

Peer mentoring is a forum for thematically focused research within the Graduate School. HGGS members have the option to establish study groups in order to research one of the key concepts of the HGGS and to interconnect their research on an interdisciplinary level. These groups can be supported by two professors or postdocs from different fields. The results of the intensive research projects will be made accessible to other members of the HGGS and to the wider public through exhibitions, publications, conferences and/or workshops, which can be financially supported by the Graduate School.


Applications

HGGS members establish study groups that consist of at least four and no more than ten people. Ideally, a group should include members in their first and third year. The group has the option to contact two professors or postdocs from different fields in order to advise the interdisciplinary group during the project.

There are two stages to the application.

The first step is to hand in a project outline (2-3 pages) including the following details:

- names and addresses of applicants;

- disciplines involved;

- title and short description of project;

- estimated total cost and list detailing costs of major items/activities.

Applications should be sent to the HGGS. If the steering committee approves the project outline, applicants are invited to submit a detailed project proposal (max. 10 pages).

 

Documents required for project proposal:

Cover page

Project title; name of contact person with address, department and field of research; names of group members with departmental addresses and disciplines; names of professors or postdocs with their university address and discipline.
