Summer Schools Task Force

Role of the Task Force

The role of the Task Force is to:

  • Encourage member institutions to propose ideas for Utrecht Network Summer Schools. See: Hosting a Utrecht Network International Summer School 
  • Assess applications by potential Summer school hosts, including funding requests, check the conditions on site and recommend summer schools to the Steering Committee.
  • Provide advice to organisers, if requested, on general principles of organising a school with Utrecht Network support.
  • Help advertise schools for recruitment.
  • Help advertise the Utrecht Network during the school.
  • Asses the evaluations of the summer school from an organizational point of view.
  • Contribute to projects dealing with summer schools as a means of internationalisation.

Utrecht Network Summer Schools should meet the following criteria:

a) an academic committee is organising and monitoring the content of the school;
b) the majority of institutions represented in the academic committee should belong to Utrecht Network;
c) the majority of participants (students and/or doctoral candidates) should belong to Utrecht Network and partner consortia, including locals, but not exclusively;
d) fees should be different for participants from within, including partner consortia, and outside Utrecht Network.
