This seminar is thought mainly (but not exclusively) for PhD students with cE3c supervision. For students in their 1st PhD year the seminar can count ECTs for several Doctoral programmes, particularly Biology (FCUL) or Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution (BIODIV UL), corresponding to 6 ECTS* in each semester. They can thus be a part of the 1st year curriculum (CFA) of their PhD programmes.

* - For PhD FCUL students requiring 5 ECTs for their PhD programme two of the sessions are not mandatory.

Directed to: Students of cE3c enrolling in their first PhD year. The seminars are also of high interest to other cE3c post-graduate students (e.g doing master studies in a Biology area), or PhD students at a more advanced year, or grant holders (BI, BTI)

General Plan

The cE3c SEMINAR I is composed of a weekly session of 1h30 during 15 weeks in the 1st semester. The students also have to attend the 'Encontros Scientia' and cE3c conferences.

Each session is promoted by a researcher belonging to one cE3c research group. It involves the discussion of one or more papers, that may be (though not necessarily) with co-authorship of the specific organizer of that session. The papers are given in advance so that the participants have read them when they come to the session.

With such a programme, the students that attend the seminars will have the opportunity to better know the research that is being developed in cE3c, brainstorm around a diversity of topics and gain acquaintance with cE3c members and other students.

The specific programme, ie the calendar of the sessions relative to the corresponding cE3c teams will be presented on the first day of the Seminar.
