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 calendar regularly!

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 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. 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.

Self-study material

Some of the COMPUTE courses have released their course material for self-studies:
