Courses for PhD students
NWO-I has developed a range of training courses, for PhD's at the University Workgroups (BUW) and PhD's working at participating NWO institutes AMOLF, ARCNL, CWI, DIFFER, Nikhef, NIOZ, and SRON. These courses are all given in English.
NWO-I invites PhD's from the participating institutes for the training courses at a certain point in their PhD trajectory, in agreement with the P&O department of their institute. If you work at another institute and would like to participate, or if your training needs differ from the offered courses, then please contact your P&O department.

Online training Science Integrity
NWO-I wants their trainee researchers to keep aware of research integrity in daily practice. Discussing integrity is essential as it contributes to an open, safe, and inclusive research culture in which good scientific practices are ensured. NWO-I, therefore, offers four online modules to combine with the Dilemma Game App. This training is for all NWO-I PhD students and researchers in the first year of their appointment. It is part of the NWO-I training programme for PhD students.
You can register for the training here and download the app here.
More information can be found in the programme (see attachment at the bottom of this page).
Although the training courses have primarily been developed for PhD's, NWO-I postdocs are nevertheless welcome to take part. If you as a postdoc are interested in one of the training courses stated above, then make this known to the P&O department of your institute.
N.B.: For postdocs, the same investment in the form of holiday leave hours applies as for researchers in training (see table above).
NWO-I Business Orientations provides third- and fourth-year PhD students with the (online) opportunity to experience dynamics within organizations outside of academia.
This year they were invited to two events at ASML, the online PhD-excursion and the Virtual Career Day.
