UPF-CEXS PhD STUDENTS SYMPOSIUM I

We are pleased to announce the creation of the first UPF- CEXS PhD Students Symposium at the PRBB Auditorium on 24th of November. Book it in your agenda and check the activites!

REGISTRATIONS AT EVENTUM UPF BEFORE NOVEMBER 13

Why?

Our department, the UPF-CEXS department, has nearly 30 different research groups and employs a little over 100 PhD students, however despite some initiatives to have department seminars, there has never been organized a gathering for PhD students. Hence we propose the very first UPF-CEXS gathering in the form of a 1-day symposium. A day to connect with each other, listen to some inspiring talks and practice and polish our poster presentation skills. In the future, we hope this initiative will grow and evolve into a PhD student week with different activities across all the different institutions of the PRBB.

WHO?

Open to everybody! However only UPF-CEXS PhD students will be able to present their posters and benefit from coffee breaks, free lunch and other activities.

WHERE?

PRBB (Barcelona Biomedical Research Park)
