Partners

The doctoral schools partner with several other internal and external departments and organisations. Below you can find an overview with links to their activities and course offer.

Doctoral school partners


Education department

Most modules on education are organized in a demand-driven way by the Department of Educational excellence, professionalization and diversity. This means that instructors/professors can 'order' a tailor-made workshop on a specific topic for a specific group of interested people. However, they also have a limited open course offer. These open courses can be found on their website:

Open courses (not tailor-made courses) will automatically be added to the portfolio of the PhD students who signed the attendance list. 

Research Data Management (RDM)

All UHasselt researchers are expected to adhere to the UHasselt RDM policy plan and manage their data efficiently and with integrity. The RDM team can give you advice on data management planning, policies, best practices, tools, etc.  You can contact them directly with your questions and/or follow one or more of their trainings. For their course offer, more information and registration, see their training calendar.

Most of these trainings can be acknowledged in the doctoral school portfolio (indicated next to the course in the training calendar). They will automatically be added to the portfolio of the PhD students who signed the attendance list. For PhD students of the Doctoral School of Health & Life Sciences, a combination of different sessions (adding up to a half/full day) can be acknowledged together as (half) a transferable skills course. 

HR Department

Hasselt University encourages personal growth and development among its staff. You can also follow training courses that are not position-oriented, such as language courses, computer, coaching, communication, etc. You can find their training offer (in Dutch) here.

You can find their calendar here.

Activities from f-TALES will automatically be added to the portfolio of the PhD students who signed the attendance list.

Flemish Supercomputer Center (VSC)

The VSC is a partnership between the five Flemish universities and their university associations. This consortium brings together knowhow in scientific and technical computing (including high performance computing, high throughput computing, cloud computing and data processing) in Flanders, and houses infrastructure in four hubs: the datacenters of the universities of Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent and Leuven.
