Annual General Meeting (AGM)

UiODoc’s general meeting is held once every year.

Usually, the AGM is held in the spring semester but due to the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic started in spring 2020, the AGM was shifted to September. Therefore, in 2020 and 2021 it was held in September.

Now that the pandemic has cooled down here in Norway, the Board of 2021-2022 decided to have it in spring again.

At the AGM, we will introduce UiODoc in more detail, report our past activities and discuss future plans and, not least, elect the members of the UiODoc board for the next year.

The general meeting is a great opportunity to learn more about UiODoc’s work and mission, and to influence our future plans. It is also a good place to meet like-minded doctoral researchers from all of the university units.

At the meeting, we will offer an introduction to UiODoc, report on our activities from the last year, present and discuss plans for future events, discuss proposals to change UiODoc’s statutes and elect the board that will represent our organization for the following academic year, until the next general assembly. Of course, any PhD and postdoc at UiO is eligible to run for our elections.

Finally, we are very interested in hearing your ideas and opinions about PhD life at the University of Oslo – do you have issues with the university administration or working conditions, or do you have suggestions for social and career activities aimed at PhDs or postdocs? – So feel free to bring these up at our meeting!
