Keynote 1: Are we there yet? From papers to a finished dissertation
Monday 23/05 21:00-22:00
A growing number of universities are opening for the possibility to deliver PhD dissertations in form of collection of papers. In this presentation will discuss advantages and disadvantages of collection of papers vs. monographies. Most important, we will reflect on how to write a good synopsis, bringing each paper into a coherent narrative. Which are the challenges? When should you start writing your synopsis? What should you focus on? The goal is to provide some food for thoughts and trigger discussion among the participants. The school offers a unique opportunity to discuss and compare regulations and practices across different universities and different countries.
