Other activities

COMPUTE organizes two annual events, the Winter meeting and the Summer retreat. The Winter meeting is a workshop in Lund with presentations under a common theme and is open to anyone. The Summer retreat is for COMPUTE members, PhD students, partners, and supervisors, and invited lecturers and focuses on skills development, usually at a location outside of Lund, but not always.

COMPUTE also organizes other workshops, sometimes in collaboration with partner organizations, and lunch mingles for networking and exchanging experiences. In addition, we host peer learning groups and provide materials for self-learning.

Please check the COMPUTE calendar regularly!

Peer mentoring groups

Peer mentoring groups bring together likeminded COMPUTE members in small groups who meet monthly to council each other on career development, soft skills and other topics of choice related to their research and transition to their next job.

To be part of the next round, please register here (registration closes 20240415).


2024 Winter Meeting

The 2024 COMPUTE winter meeting will be on 22nd march, fika to fika. The event focussea on "Computational Science and Sustainability" and is organized jointly with the LU profile area "Nature based future solutions". It targets PhD students as well as researchers.

Ongoing Activities

Lunch mingles

COMPUTE lunch mingles are a chance to connect with fellow COMPUTE students and researchers in an informal setting and discuss topics related to your research as well as soft skills, career development and organizational topics. Each mingle has a main topic, announced on the respective COMPUTE calendar page, but participants can also chat freely about other things that interest them.

Peer-learning groups

Peer-learning groups are for people who want to acquire a certain skill on their own and connect with others who do the same. 

We are currently conducting a survey for peer-learning group topics.  The COMPUTE team will go through the suggestion and will put members with matching interest into contact and assist in the setup of the group.  The survey is active until the end of March 2023.

Currently, we have the following peer-learning groups:

If you want to join or have ideas for additional peer-learning groups, please read the websites for each group and get in touch.
