PhD Day 2021 - Sustaining our future

Our PhD Day is an annual gathering designed as a show case for the doctoral researchers to share their research activities and findings, and to discuss and address scientific issues on an informal level with the GFZ research community. It is also where all doctoral researchers have the opportunity to share and discuss their experience with each other. This year marks the start of a new research program for our institute that is now organised around Topics shared by six other Helmholtz centres in the broad research field of “Earth and Environment”. For this reason, the 2021 PhD Day is organised around the five Topics in which the GFZ is involved in order to help doctoral researchers better position their research activities within the new program and understand how they contribute to the societal challenges around which the program and the Topics are built. Last but not least, the PhD Day will also be a great opportunity to make new connexions and, why not, initiate new collaborations through 1on1 “deep dives”.

Your Contribution

Only your contributions make the PhD Day work!

  • if you are Doctoral Researcher, you will have to prepare a 90s science pitch (all explained in detail here) AND provide us with additional information on you and your research (here) so we can match you with a researcher for 1-on-1 deep dives
  • if you are a participating researcher, we need information on you and your research (here) to match you with a doctoral researcher for the 1-on-1 deep dives

We need the information by 5th of June at the latest (Registration closure).
