Section 2: "Teaching and project-relevant dissemination"

At least 420 hours of paid work organized by the institute Board of Education, plus a maximum of another 420 hours of other paid work. Besides this the Ph.D.-comitee of the Niels Bohr Institute require that the Ph.D.-student has completed at least 100 hours of project-relevant dissemination.

Section 3: "Travel and change of enviroment"

Travel and change of scientific enviroment: The rules are not very strict on that point, but the politically correct statement is that about 1 term, 6 months (or 182.5 days) of change in scientific enviroment is optimal to give a certain degree of non-local touch to the Ph.D.-education.
