Dear fellow PhD’s,

On the 26th of September 2024, the (on-site) Academic Year Kick-off Meeting takes place and you are invited! Even though this event is still some time away, we want to get you excited about a professional workshop to enhance your networking skills. After the workshop, you can apply these skills into practice and reach new heights during an hour of bouldering with your colleagues. To top it off, you get a well-deserved (free) drink!

After the summer holiday, we want to organize something for the people who cannot participate onsite. The exact details will be communicated at a later time.



13:00-15:00: Networking workshop by external experts
On-site @ UNS60 Co Greep-zaal

16:00-17:00: Bouldering with a professional guide
For on-site workshop attendees only @ Boulderhal Radium Boulders  

After the networking workshop, there will be plenty of time to travel to the bouldering site by own transport. Please register by September 18th at the latest to secure your spot.

Enjoy the summer, and we hope to see you in September!

The PhD-reps,

Diogo, Chrissy, Quincy, Giselle and Esther
