Doctoral School Programme Structure

The ANDROID disaster resilience network doctoral school consists of two programmes:

  1. Online Doctoral School (ODS) and
  2. Residential Doctoral School (RDS)

Online Doctoral School (ODS)

The objective of the ODS is to transfer knowledge and develop the knowledge base of doctoral candidates. This is achieved through the conduct of series of domain expert presentations along with detailed discussion sessions aimed at engaging the participants in knowledge discovery through detailed discussion. A panel of experts in disaster management and resilience will lead the discussion.
The ODS will be a two day workshop conducted online on 26 & 27 March 2014. Refer the ODS programme schedule or the ANDROID web site for further details. There are no charges involved in participation of the ODS programme. 

A certificate of attendance will be issued to participants completing the programme by the ANDROID Network.

Residential Doctoral School (RDS)

The RDS programme aims to actively engage the participants in presenting and discussing their doctoral research projects. It involves each candidate submitting a research paper (which will be double-blind peer reviewed) and making a short presentation of it to a panel of experts at the residential workshop. Detailed discussion providing valuable independent feedback will follow each of the presentations. The papers submitted to the RDS by the doctoral candidates will form into an edited published doctoral proceeding. The RDS programme will include keynote presentations from renowned experts and other activities such as excursions to disaster sites or other relevant activity.

The RDS will be a two day residential workshop conducted in as a separate theme at 4th International Conference on Building Resilience, incorporating the 3rd Annual Meeting of the ANDROID Disaster Resilience Network held at the MediaCityUK, Salford Quays, UK,  8th – 10th September 2014.

There are 15 scholarships of €750 (maximum) each available for selected successful candidates who attend the RDS programme to cover expenses incurred against the programme (subject to selection criteria and ANDROID Network membership). Full fee paying candidates will be charged a £100 registration fee. Details of cost of accommodation, venue and all other details will be announced shortly.

A certificate of attendance will be issued to participants completing the programme by the ANDROID Network.
