About GEfIL Expert Mentor Lecture Series

GEfIL Expert Mentor Lecture Series

The “GEfIL Export Mentor Lecture Series” is a compulsory course for students participating in the Independent Research Project PHASE1. (These courses replace  GEfIL IRP Complementary Coursesl.

It consists of 7-8 interactive lectures and discussion sessions given by the GEfIL Expert Mentors and Co-Mentors. The thematic fields of the Independent Research Project and the GEfIL Program as a whole are closely related to, and informed by, the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the post-2015 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). Thus, the “GEfIL Export Mentor Lecture Series” is designed as an introduction to the cutting-edge research conducted by the Expert Mentors on specific SDGs and their implementation. The course provides students with close insights into how GEfIL thought-leaders tackle problems of a complex, global nature such as the SDGs. Crucially, students will gain a clear understanding of how research can and does impact practice in, for instance, international agenda setting, development of public policy or corporate strategies, or technological innovations. A further important aim of the course is to facilitate a sustained academic dialogue between GEfIL Expert Mentors and students from the very beginning of studentsʼ GEfIL studies. This will enable students to make well-informed choices when selecting their PHASE2 thematic field and strengthen studentsʼ research work in both their PHASE1 and PHASE2 classes.
