What is "BaGru SoWi Dok"?

BaGru SoWi Dok is the abbreviation for “PhD base group in social sciences”. The name stands for the student representation of the PhD curriculum in the social sciences that was elected in the 2019 ÖH-elections. The 5 elected candidates, along with further activists enrolled in this curriculum, represent PhD-students’ interests in various university committees. The current representatives work as a base group. This means that there is a plenary structure open to all PhD-students. Everybody is welcome to come to the meetings, bring ideas, influence decisions and develop activities. Read more...
