The PhD Symposium is designed to provide a platform for students and researchers at different stages wishing to present and receive guidance on various aspects of their research and career perspectives from established researchers and other PhD students.

Thus, the Symposium aims to enable PhD students to interact with each other and potential collaborators by stimulating the exchange of ideas and experiences. On the one hand, students at different stages of their research will have the opportunity to present and discuss their research questions, goals, methods and results. On the other hand, the PhD Symposium will offer training sessions on topics and skills that may be useful to future researchers. To achieve these, postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers will share their experience and lecturers will deliver training on research skills and future career prospects.

How will it work?

Each strand of the Symposium will be coordinated by two experts who will chair the discussions and respond to the presentations. Participants’ presentations should deal with the issues addressed or hypotheses tested in their doctoral research, the results so far obtained, and above all the methodology applied. Each presentation will last no longer than 5/10 minutes, followed by 5 minutes’ discussion. Each session will be followed by an open discussion between the participants.

How to participate?

The symposium is an open and free event. All participants must register in advance.

In parallel to the Symposium, a conference track conformed by keynotes and roundtables with renowned experts on the field of platform work will be held.
