Information for Aii course organizers

Here you find all the information for course organizers in the Aii doctoral programme.

Planning a course

The doctoral program Aii administrates and finances around 19 doctoral courses. If you are interested in organizing a course within the field of allergy, immunology or inflammation:

  1. Start by reading the course organizers checklist
  2. Look also at the general information for arranging doctoral courses and activities.
  3. Contact Caroline ( well in advance to discuss the course (especially if it is a new course that is applying for Aii funding).
  4. Submit the new or revised syllabus in KIWAS
  5. Submit the course occasions in KIWAS (check with Caroline that the dates don’t collide with any other Aii course)

It is important to submit your course syllabus and course occasions in time. Typically fall deadlines are in February and spring deadlines are in September. You can check for current deadlines here.


Aii finances a budget of up to 65 000 SEK/course week (including INDI).

In your application for financial support, please also include a short description of expenses you expect (e.g. lecture room rent, copying, travel, hotel, lab reagents, external lecture representation, compensation of teachers) to Caroline. Out of the max 65.000 SEK per week, 15.000 can be shared between the course organizer(s) and the “kursamanuens” for compensation of their teaching/organizing time and efforts to administrate the course.

In the case the course budget exceeds 65 000 SEK/week, an extended budget may be allowed for special cases, such as lab-intensive courses, but must be approved together with the course syllabus. Reports of expenses for reimbursement should add INDI to the incurred total direct costs based on the organizer’s department. (Note that INDI is included in the above mentioned SEK 15.000 compensation).


Expenses should be reported to Caroline Grönwall ( for reimbursement no later than three months after completion of the course.

The reporting should include:

Please note that the course needs to have a minimum of 8 KI-registered PhD students or KI postdocs to receive the full funding.

COVID-19 related information

Consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on KI’s doctoral education

Doctoral students and supervisors find detailed information regarding how different aspects of doctoral education at KI are affected by the ongoing pandemic below. Information regarding new recommendations or decisions will be updated at this webpage continuously.

Information for courses to be given HT2020

Following the recommendations from the Public Health Agency to reduce the spread of infection, the basic rule is still that theoretical doctoral courses are given remotely.

Risk assessment for campus-based course or other learning activity

The basic rule for doctoral courses and other learning activities that are offered during the covid-19 pandemic is that they should be implemented remotely, until further notice. However, there are some exceptions, but before a decision is taken to plan these for a physical location, a risk assessment must be made.

Deviation from course syllabus due to covid-19

KI's ambition is to be able to carry out as many planned doctoral courses as possible, despite the spread of the corona virus and the restrictions this entails. It is allowed to deviate from the teaching and learning activities established in the syllabus and, if necessary, also the form of examination, provided that the intended learning objectives of the course can still be achieved. This page describes how to document these deviations.
