The Osijek Doctoral Colloquium was planned to be taking place in the Summer, from  June 27 to August 2, 2020.

There are a few changes that we have to face, due to extraordinary conditions and problems created by the pandemic. In the light of the last informations that we received from Croatia, due to the health measures and regulations, the Summer ODC cannot be held in Osijek this time.

As a consequence, the steering committee started to look for alternative locations/ways, at satellite locations and online.

Each doctoral participant is expected to spend 6-8 hours per day in the study of their selected topic. In addition to your directed study with a mentor, there will be daily group meetings each morning.

You should be prepared to present not only your research topic, but also a 30-minute personal testimony and outline of your ministry at home. These brief presentations will encourage us to pray for each other.

We plan to have different events together too, such as an opening and/or closing dinner which may be a wonderful opportunity for you to present music, dance, poetry, or stories from your home culture as part of the entertainment.

Again, please do not hesitate to communicate with us as you have questions.

Please read the following information carefully. Communication is an important component of your arrival at Osijek. We will do everything possible to facilitate your time here as you communicate your questions, needs, and information to us.

Fees and Costs

Costs

The costs of the ODC are a non-refundable registration fee of EUR 50 to be paid by 15th June 2020 (please add name participant+ODC2020). In addition, as the costs per person per week are more than 500 euro (food, accommodation, facilities, resources, mentoring), we expect each participant also to contribute to 10% of these costs of accommodation, food etc.

Thus each future participant on-site is required to be prepared to pay an amount of 50 euro per person per week.

Each participant on-line is required to be prepared to pay an amount of 35 euro per person per week (for the costs for food and accommodation are not applicable).

The payment could be done before (bank transfer, with name participant + ODC2020) or during the colloquium (cash or by bank transfer).

Only in exceptional cases a 100% scholarship will be granted.

Participants also have to cover the costs related to obtaining their visas, and their own travel. Exceptions do apply.
