The main goal is to stand up for the rights of all PhD-candidates, for instance the right to follow courses and the right to receive high quality supervision during their research. The board meets the Dean and people of Human Resources and Research & Policy on a regular base. Moreover, Promeras advises the PhD Committee about the PhD Education Policy. Additionally, when PhD-candidates have questions or problems the board of Promeras can offer help.
Promeras is a member of EPAR (Erasmus PhD Association Rotterdam) and PNN (Promovendi Netwerk Nederland). Promeras has regular meetings with the EPAR board and PhD-candidate representatives of other EUR-faculties to discuss matters on university and on national level.
Promeras also organizes social events for its members such as drink nights, bowling events, pub-quizzes, and more.
