WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE PhD STUDENT COUNCIL OF THE DUTCH GRADUATE SCHOOL OF EXPERIMENTAL PLANT SCIENCES (EPS)

The PhD Student Council consists of representatives from all research groups joined in EPS. The Council advises the Board and Committees of EPS both upon their request and its own initiative. The chairman of the PhD Student Council attends the meetings of the Board, the Research committee and Educational committee.

The PhD Student Council consists of PhD Students that are connected to the Graduate School EPS through their research groups. Each member represents its own research groups and brings forward the opinion and ideas of that group. The Council meets 4-6 times per year and discusses matters such as the Education programme (courses, seminars, symposia, PhD Students days, etc.), optimal education and research facilities, PhD Supervision and research opportunities. The Council pleads for the interest of all EPS PhD Students.

As a Council we represent the interest of the EPS PhD students and we are compromised in bringing up questions and problems which may rise in your study to the decision makers in the universities. We also contribute in (new) developments which may affect your PhD student experience, through our involvement in the educational, research and board committees of the EPS.
Therefore it is of utmost importance that all groups are represented within the EPS PhD Student Council, so we can rely on the feedback of all PhD students.
