PhD candidates of PE&RC are organised in the PE&RC PhD Council (PPC). The members of this council represent various research fields and categories of PhD candidates within the graduate school. The main objective of the PE&RC PhD Council is to advise the PE&RC PhD Programme coordinators, the PE&RC Board and the PE&RC Committees, both at their request and on its own initiative. Additionally, the PPC serves as a "Knowledge and Experience Base" for new PhD candidates. The PPC does so by organising the annual PE&RC Day and by assigning "Buddies" to facilitate the arrival and quick acclimatisation of new PhD candidates at the Graduate School PE&RC. The PPC meets once a month. The PE&RC PhD Programme coordinators generally join these meetings.
If you have any questions about the PPC, or if you feel the PPC should know about a certain issue that you are experiencing or that you heard of, and that applies to more people than just you yourself, then please contact the PPC directly via their dedicated e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you are interested in joining the PPC yourself, please contact them via email@example.com.
