Through guest lectures and a workshop, the colloquium gives PhD students an excellent opportunity to meet colleagues, network and learn about the following topics:

  • The PhD process and career paths in different countries
  • Critical stages in the PhD process and how to successfully master them
  • Coping with possible personal problems while pursuing a PhD, such as the fear that you will never finish it or the lack of time for family and friends

  • Landing your first industry job

Guest lectures will provide a starting point for workshop discussions. Workshops will tackle topics the participants are most interested in. They provide a unique opportunity to share experiences and ideas with students from different countries and university systems.
