The Smart/Micro Grid Research Center (SMGRC) at the University of Kurdistan is very happy to be able to host a number of visiting researchers and visiting doctoral students each year. As we are unable to accept all those wishing to visit and work with us, we especially welcome those whose research interests fit most closely with those of our research center. We will work with the visiting researchers we do accept in advance of their visit to develop an agreed research work plan, which brings clear benefits to both parties. In order to make the most effective use of your time with us, we suggest that plans are made well in advance of your visit. If you are interested in joining us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
