COVID-19 guidelines for conducting on-site PhD defences

For the period November - December 2020, the following guidelines apply in connection with PhD defences:

Max 20 participants are allowed at on-site PhD defences. Seats in the front row of the auditorium are reserved for the PhD student’s private guests. Apart from the PhD student, the assessment committee, the supervisors and the PhD student’s private guests, there will be room for a limited number of internal participants. All defences will be streamed via MS Teams.

A mini-reception can be held after the defence (with a glass of bubbles). Apart from the PhD student, the assessment committee, the supervisors and the PhD student’s private guests, there will be room for a limited number of internal participants. The maximum number of participants allowed at the reception is 15.

Participation is by prior registration by e-mail to PhD Secretary Susanne Christensensch@econ.au.dk

On-site PhD defences and on-site receptions must be held in accordance with the authorities’ current guidelines on safe distance and hygiene. Face masks must be worn except when seated. All participants must adhere to the current guidelines.
