A2 coordinator: Ad van Dommelen
One leading principle in the choice of a specific A2 project will always be that the PhD student him-/herself and his/her PhD research should benefit from the proposed A2 project.
If, for example, a PhD candidate would like to include multidisciplinary considerations in one of the dissertation chapters, then the actual writing of this chapter could count as a successful A2 project – depending, of course, upon the approval of the final result by the A2 coordinator.
Another challenging outcome of an A2-project can be the writing of a so-called ‘research view’, which is a short (max. 6 pages) critical evaluation of the PhD candidate’s own research. Such an evaluation should place the research within a broader perspective. Such A2 Research Views may be published on the personal webpage of the PhD students (and also in the SENSE e-News). The A2 activity can also be the basis for a publication in journals that publish VIEWS, e.g. Re/Views in Environmental Science and Bio/Technology (http://www.wkap.nl/journals/resb) or Environmental Chemistry Letters (http://www.springer.de).
This mandatory research activity may be operationalised in different forms, which should be discussed with the A2 coordinator, the SENSE Director of Education, Dr. Ad van Dommelen beforehand.
