In each track two experts from different work fields share their work experiences. Each expert gives a short presentation about his or her background, current job and skills. After these presentations there will be a Q&A session. You can prepare for the tracks by thinking of questions you would like to ask the guests. 


You are going to attend 4 workshops in total during PhACE. In each of the 4 workshop rounds you can choose in what workshop you would like to participate. 

You will find a description of the PhACE workshops at the website later when the program is set.
