CEFO is an interdisciplinary research forum for PhD students that focuses on environment
and development studies. The research forum is financed jointly by Uppsala University and the Swedish University of Agricultural
Sciences (SLU). CEFO does not have any doctoral students of its
own, but if you already are a doctoral student then you can be associated to CEFO.
CEFO arranges seminars were students can present their own research
and recive constructive feedback from an interdisciplinary group
of PhD students. Our aim is to have students from as many
disciplines and backgrounds as possible. We also arrange PhD
courses that are initiated by and designed to fit the needs and interests of the affiliated PhD candidates.
As a Cefo-associated PhD student you aim to participate in Cefo's research seminars (about 8 seminars per term) and engage yourself with Cefo's courses and other activities as much as your other obligations allows you to. The courses and the seminars are also open for those
doctoral students that are not associated to CEFO. The benefits of being associated to Cefo are that you can participate in organising and developing
the courses - something
that follows Cemus ethos - and participate in many other activities (see below).
