PhD and doctoral symposium of the veterinary department // 27 September 2019 

The symposium will take place on September 27th and is designed for young scientists to practice and develop presenting skills. Every participant is offered space to present either a poster or a presentation about his/her research results. Furthermore, they will be able to train their skills in scientific discussion, without the fear of exposing themselves in front of more experienced colleagues. Young scientists are offered the possibility to make new contacts and to enlarge their network. The symposium is recognised by the DRS and will offer credit points to the participants. Food and drinks, as well as an after work party are provided for free and there is no registration fee.

Sessions will focus on power abuse and harassment, being queer in science, mental health, bias and stereotypes.
