PAND is a national network of local associations who represent PhD candidates at a university level. Established in January of 2017, we are devoted to facilitating collaboration and knowledge sharing among the network’s member associations and to providing a common voice for PhD candidates in Denmark on nationally and internationally relevant topics.
The PAND board consists of two representatives from every university in Denmark and has two co-chairs who come from different institutions to ensure a broad spectrum of the PhD candidate population are represented.
There are four main objectives that PAND works towards; providing a common voice, promoting PhD candidates' interests, supporting local associations and facilitating collaboration across our member associations.
To provide PhD candidates in Denmark a voice, PAND actively produces policy statements outlining issues and possible solutions to issues relevant to PhD candidates. Furthermore PAND responds to requests for advice from interested parties and provides a contact point for national media when PhD issues are in the spotlight. The PAND board is made up of and consults with representatives from across the country to collect views and opinions that represent the broadest spectrum of PhD candidates.
PAND works together with unions and academic institutions to promote supportive, healthy and realistic working conditions.
