Tankesmia Grønn Fase deler i 2016 ut 50 000 kr til beste idé eller konsept som fremmer miljøvennlig energi.

På klimakonferansen i Paris i desember 2015 ble Verdenssamfunnet enig om en historisk klimaavtale, hvor så vel fattige som rike land forpliktet seg til å kutte i klimagassutslipp. Målet er at temperaturen på kloden ikke skal stige mer enn 2 – ja helst ikke mer enn 1,5 grader – før århundret er over, og allerede i andre halvdel av århundret skal vi nå klimanøytralitet. Ikke minst skal landene bli bedre til å samarbeide om klimatilpasning, og dessuten til å dele kunnskap og erfaringer.

Lenke til mer informasjon på Tankesmia Grønn Fase sine nettsider.

Frist 01. april 2016

Idéen/konseptet skal formuleres skriftlig, og sendes til post@gronnfase.org.

Course contents:

Most PhD students have little leadership experience and most lack leadership training or formal education to show for on their CV. Furthermore, few PhD-students are aware of their personal skills and leadership potential, or how to develop these. Despite these facts, many jobs available to candidates with PhD degrees, both outside and within academia, include leadership tasks such as project management, team leadership and supervision.
This course aims to prepare PhD students to take on leadership tasks once their degrees are completed. This will be achieved through introducing different leadership concepts and raising the PhD students` awareness of the value of leadership and how leadership takes many forms.
The second main objective is to make the PhD students reflect upon their own problem solving style and the associated advantages and disadvantages.
Objective of the course:
Knowledge:
  • Be able to describe the contents of different theories on leadership
  • Be able to explain the range of leadership skills needed in order to practice good leadership
  • Be able to describe different problem-solving styles and their associated benefits and disadvantages

Skills:

  • Use achieved knowledge as analytical tools to formulate, structure and discuss aspects of leadership
  • Be able to transfer knowledge of leadership and leadership skills to practical use
  • Be able to reflect upon own leadership skills and take steps to further ones development
