Here you will find information about the different versions of digital defence. In order to conduct a partially digital defence the necessary technical equipment and appropriate rooms need to be available, and that the candidate, the chair of the defence and the chair of the committee are not in a high risk group, otherwise the defence will have to be completely digital.
A completely digital defence makes use of Zoom for all communication, and is conducted as a webinar. All participants are in separate locations, following the defence using their own computer.
At a partially digital defence only the opponents participate in Zoom. Everyone else is either present in the defence lecture room, or can follow the defence digitally as it is streamed to the defence announcement website.
