Newsletter December 2015 from the ITS Postgraduate school (NFITS)
The ITS Postgraduate school started in 2008 and at the moment there are 15 PhD-students enrolled.
During 2015, there has been one PhD-defence (Mahmood Rahmani, presented in Newsletter June
2015) and we have welcomed three new PhD-students. Two of them are presented below (the third
was presented in the June newsletter).
During the last years there has been a small decrease in inflow of new PhD-students and from NFITS
we need to work hard to recruit new students. To engage new PhD students, we need not only
ensure funding to cover the salary of the PhD student and other project costs but also generate good
research ideas and establish good cooperation with relevant companies and organizations. We believe
research and education is very important for the development of ITS and NFITS will therefore try to
contribute as much as possible to the ongoing work to develop the national ITS Strategy and Action
