Inter-University PhD and Postdoc Community
First of all our best wishes for 2021!
In the upcoming months, PhD Society aims to establish an inter-university community of early-career researchers. As a community, we can then further develop and expand supportive services for PhD candidates and Postdoctoral researchers at various stages of their careers.
To this end, we will organise several networking events during which young researchers can meet and reflect on various topics related to for instance: professional development, working conditions, open science, mental health, entrepreneurship, science and policy making, etc. …
If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact us via [

We are looking forward to building this community together with you!
