Jelsness-Jørgensen is in fact the first rector to address the largest number of PhDs that Østfold University College has ever had, and with the rector’s contribution the activity is planned to be relevant and insightful for everyone.


You will hear a presentation and have the possibility to discuss two very relevant topics for the PhDs.  

  • How to communicate our research results better
  • How to dive into an academic career as a continuation after the PhD period 


Moreover, it will be arranged a section of Q&A on the two topics discussed.

We will make sure that all considerations regarding the corona-situation will be handled during the event.

Room H-334 only have room for a maximum of 30 persons. An invitation containing registration form is sent by mail to the PhD candidates. If someone outside the PhD-forum are interested in joining the rector’s talk, please send an e-mail to: for registration. (The event will not be streamed.)
