Doctoral Day 2020 – 26th March 2020

The Doctoral Day event takes place annually and welcomes all our PhD-students, as well as their research supervisors.

This scientific gathering offers all our PhD students a platform to present their doctoral work and receive comments from a discussant. The Doctoral Day is also meant to offer opportunities to 'meet and greet' and exchange ideas with fellow students and supervisors. Finally, the annual Doctoral Day wants to contribute to the visibility of the growing research environment of our Faculty of Design Sciences.

Presentation of Talent Center – DP&O

The Talent Center (HR Departement) was launched in 2017 as an internal career center for PhD students and postdocs. Its mission is to encourage and support early-career researchers to reflect on and steer their (future) career.
