PhD Forum Programme

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Starting at: 13.30

The PhD Forum 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.

Pitch Talk Presentations (to be announced)

Poster Presentations over coffee – An open session for discussion with all students standing next to their posters.
