UCPH Archaeological Research Day

April 6th

Welcome to the first annual Archaeological Research Day at the University of Copenhagen

A day that will bring together archaeology from across faculties and that will give you new inspiration and networking opportunities.

Throughout the day you will experience short and encouraging lectures as well as exciting poster talks and presentations from talented Postdocs and PhD students.

At the end of the day Niels Bohr Professor Matthew Collins from the Evogenomics section at the Natural History Museum of Denmark will give his inaugural lecture, and the prize for the best poster presentation will also be announced.

Sign up for the day as soon as possible via snm-admin@palaeome.org.
