Study Visits

The WASP program is situated in an internationally fast-moving area and the international dimension is therefore inherent in the program. There are thus two mandatory international study visits offered during the PhD student’s time in WASP.

The first trip targets an interesting location in Europe and the second reaches further abroad. For example, North America and Asia have a large number of highly relevant sites to visit for WASP students. The trips often include both university and company visits.

Grounding of a Career Journey

The study visits allow the participants to discover and connect with research groups of interest. A suitable occasion to ground for a stint abroad or a future postdoctoral scholarship. Apart from external contacts, the networking within the WASP PhD student group itself is an important goal of these trips.

Except the centrally organized trips, the graduate school students are also encouraged to arrange their own study visits abroad with funding from WASP. Often these trips are arranged in smaller groups and in the later years of the PhD period.
