Young Research Network (YRN)

Our vision

YRN, short for Young Research Network, is an organization of doctoral students from the Faculty of Business and Economics (FBE) at the University of Antwerp. Our main goal is to make sure that PhD students and postdocs of various departments get to know each other. We are convinced that the opportunity to network and to share experiences is an important aspect of the PhD journey apart from our academic work.

YRN and the PhD journey

Pre: get to know other PhD studenten; practical information

During: cross-departmental information exchange; research synergies

Post: bridge between alumni and faculty; job opportunities


Offline: we organize informal after-work / lunch events where we can all meet on a regular basis. The forum can also be used to provide you with any help or information you may need concerning your PhD process.

Online: join us on Facebook or LinkedIn
