PhD Day Groningen


The PhD Day Groningen is BACK and will be BIGGER than ever! If you are a PhD student, PostDoc and/or BeNeLux Chapter member and want to broaden your perspectives on research and career, make sure you don’t miss the event of the year – mark your calendar for Friday 22 September and join us and hundreds of fellow PhDs at De Oosterpoort in Groningen!

The event will be running under the theme ‘Your Talent Matters!’ and will offer a wide range of presentations and workshops to attend, all of which carefully designed to help you plan your future. We also want to offer you the invaluable chance to network and build relationships across institutions and disciplines, and meet your fellow Chapter members. Join for a lovely BeNeLux Brunch on the 23rd of September in order to share experiences and ideas about activities that would further improve Chapter activities!

If you still need convincing to buy that ticket to Groningen, see our first confirmed speakers! We are honoured and excited to have as our keynote speaker Nobel prize winner prof. dr. Ben Feringa along with RUG Lecturer of the Year dr. Malvina Nissim, co-founder and CEO of Artificial Intelligence software company Camiel Verschoor, philosopher dr. Menno de Bree, and prof. dr.
