PhD Forum Programme

The PhD Forum takes place on Wednesday, June 28, 2017, from 3 to 5 p.m. in room “Mediteran”. A total of 17 PhD students will present their current research results.

The PhD Forum programme consists of a poster session, preceded by a fast-paced introduction by each student that offers a preview of the posters. Each student is given a strictly-timed 2-minutes’ slot to present a “pitch talk” about her/his research. The purpose of the pitch talk is to provide a brief outline of one’s doctoral research work, with the goal to raise awareness and generate further discussion over the poster session and coffee break that follow.

The PhD Forum is open to everyone who is interested, and we especially welcome other students!
