- talk about your research,
- get feedback from experts who are not directly involved in your research, but have a good understanding of the broader area, and
- network with peers (but not only). All this in a supportive but critical environment.
This is an internal event of my department to get all PhD students to talk about their work. First year students present a poster in a 3minute madness session, second year students give a longer presentation on their progress (10 minutes) and third year students have the option of how to present their work (talk or poster). Supervisors and research staff are then encourage give feedback to each student.
Here you can find some pictures from the event: (more…)
