PhD Webinars in Becfor Spring 2021 : Unexpected journeys and surprising results

seminars, workshops |
Bilbo's house

Webinars with PhD students within the Becfor subject areas. Take the chance to meet other PhD students with similar subjects as your own!

Welcome to join the seminars spring 2021. The webinars will be about sharing your knowledge and ongoing projects with each other in short presentations in full group and smaller discussions in break out rooms. The purpose of the webinars is to enable PhD students from the different departments to get to know each other more and to increase your network. 
The webinars are 2 hours long with half of the time for presentations and half for break out room conversations. 
For each session you can sign up to present your ongoing studies, future projects, or your finished results. You will have 10 minutes for presenting. Feel free to screen-share a poster, a power point or a video in your talk.  
You may sign up different presentations at different webinars but don't make double registrations for the same talk (you have to choose one webinar per subject). 
If you have any questions please contact the Becfor coordinators,
