SENSE PhD Council (SPC)

The SENSE PhD Council (SPC) is an important body of ideas and advice within SENSE. The council consists of motivated PhD candidates from the different SENSE partner institutes. A representative of the SPC is always invited to meetings of the SENSE General Board (which consists of the directors of the SENSE partner institutes). Read more (PDF).
