Seminar & Mobility Aid

The attendance of Master's Degree and Doctorate students to research seminars is considered to be an essential complement for their training. Teaching staff mobility and the globalization of the Postgraduate Program are considered to be key steps towards excellence within EPS Postgraduate Program. Hence, the Vicedirection of EPS Postgraduate has been developing their own aid program to fund research seminars as well as the mobility of exceptional and renown researchers.

Both programs, described in the lines at the end of this page, have the following common elements:

  • The call is open during the academic year, as long as there is budgetary availability. Nevertheless the seminars will take place during the academic course, that is, from October 1 to June 30, excluding December for payment managing issues.
  • Seminars will have to be planned in hours that make attendance easier. They will have to be related to specific courses of the Master's Degree, aiming to stimulate student attendance.
  • The proposer will have to be responsible to collect and deliver an attendants signature sheet, after every seminar, to the Postgraduate Vicedirection.

If the specific conditions that appear at the end of his page for every program are met, the criteria for the aid to be granted, as long as the budget enables it, will be the impact of the research activity of the candidate and the interest for the EPS based on the expected attendance and that obtained in previous seminars of the same speaker.

Bellow are detailed the specific characteristics of every program.

EPS Aid for seminars

As long as the budget available allows it, funding of research seminars held in the EPS by UAM external researchers in the following conditions:

  • This funding will be restricted to the seminar itself, and will not include stay or travel expenses and will be incompatible with other similar aids.
  • The funding will be, in general, of 150€ per seminar, unless the proposer considers there should be a higher funding, based on the research quality of the speaker
  • Applications should follow the sample included in the documents that appear in the end of this page, and should be delivered to the Vicedirection in charge of the Postgraduate Program, at least 3 weeks in advance to the date of the seminar.

EPS aid for mobility in seminars
