14. PhD Day at GFZ Potsdam
The PhD Day is an annual event where all PhD students from the GFZ meet and present their current research projects, not only to their fellow PhD students, but also to all interested colleagues at GFZ and invited guests. This day is dedicated to increase the communication and net-working among all participants on a scientific and informal level.
Especially if you are going to join EGU this year (or any other major conference), the PhD day is a great opportunity to practice your respective presentation in front of a more informal audience of fellow students and within a familiar GFZ atmosphere.
Furthermore we are happy to announce that again, this years PhD Day hosts the Berlin/Brandenburg regional heat of FameLab. FameLab is one of the biggest science communication competitions in the world. If you want to know more or whish to participate at FameLab see here for more details or contact Heinrich Hecht.
When and Where?
This year's PhD Day will take place on:
Wednesday, 20 March 2019,
