PhD Day 2022 - Communicating in science: what is your story?


Every year the PhD council organises the PhD Day; an inspiring afternoon with plenary sessions and interactive workshops. The event will be closed with a diner in the Botanical Gardens.

This years theme: Communicating in science: what is your story?
Science communication is everywhere. Within your research group, with other researchers, with your friends and family, on social media or at layman's events. Because nowadays there is so much information out there, people have increasingly difficulties to listen to your story. How do you make sure that you grab people's attention? How do you stand out in the crowd? During this year's PhD Day, you will learn more about this during two plenary sessions of speakers that master these skills. Furthermore, we offer different types of workshops to develop the skills of your choice.

Information about the programme can be found below. Don't forget to participate in the ABT (And, But, Therefore) contest!
