Doctoral education Aii
Aii - allergy, immunology and inflammation
Aii is a doctoral programme at KI supported by the board of research education. Our main task is to ensure that PhD students within the fields of Allergy, Inflammation and Immunology achieve both broad and frontline area-specific knowledge during their PhD period. This task is mainly conveyed by the arrangement of theoretical research education courses but also by arrangement of practical courses and by supporting extracurricular types of activities, such as literature clubs and research forums.
The activities of Aii are decided by a steering group consisting of teacher representatives and two PhD student representatives. Aii has decided to also support teacher-specific activities, in order to further improve our courses and to ensure best possible value for the students. These teacher-specific activities will be performed in collaboration with LIME, KI.

Information for course organizers
The post-graduate program Aii administrates and finances around 25 post-graduate courses. If you are interested to organize a course within the field of allergy, immunology or inflammation, please see the general KI instructions and also follow the instructions below.
|Aii courses must be registered at KI administration by registering the course plan in the database KIWAS. Courses that have been held later than fall 07 are already registered in KIWAS. For older course, or brand new courses, a new course plan has to be registered and approved. In addition, all courses to be held the coming semester need to be specified as to where and when the course will be held. You can also revise an old course plan.|
|When you have filled in your course description in the database KIWAS, you will receive a confirmation email from Aii/Robert that the course is approved by the program. After this, you must send a message to Robert Wallin at Robert.Wallin@ki.se to apply for financial support from Aii. Aii finances a budget of up to SEK 50 000:-/course week (see below for exceptions).|
|In your application for financial support, please also include a short description of expenses you expect (ex rent, copying, catering costs (fika and/or lunch), books, travel, hotel, lab reagents, external lecture representation and payment) to Robert. Out of the max. SEK 50.000 per week, 15.000 can be shared between the course organizer(s) and the “kursamanuens” in recognition of their time and efforts to administrate the course. No detailed specification is required for this part of the budget. This money will be paid to the organizers KI account and can thus be used for research-related expenses.|
|In the case the course budget exceeds SEK 50 000:-/week, an extended budget can for special cases, such as lab-intensive courses, be approved by Aii before the course starts.|
|Expenses should be reported to Robert Wallin (and Jan Wahlström at Jan.Wahlström@ki.se) for reimbursement no later than three months after completion of the course. The reimbursement can be obtained in two parts where the A part of SEK 15 000:- can be obtained before the start of the course by sending an invoice to Jan Wahlström ZZK2JANWAH. The B part, up to SEK 35 000:-, will be paid only after the completion of the course, after Robert Wallin has received the final report (see below).|
|Please note that the course needs to have a minimum of 8 KI-registered PhD students to receive the full funding.|
|The KI post-graduate courses have had problems with students not showing up at course start. To prevent this, Aii recommends their course organizers to use the below example as reply form for students.|
|Final report: At the end of the course, we ask you to fill out the final report form below and email it to Robert Wallin.|
|KI's rules for economic reimbursements for external lecturers is found at Internwebben.|
