Every year, we are proud to offer our excellent PhD community space to organise and follow interesting workshops. Stay tuned for this year's special PhD programme.
Day 1 - Wednesday July 7, 08:00 - 08:45 CEST
Moderators: Sandra Morgenstern and Lucy Hunt
Our Annual PhD Assembly is a platform created for all interested in the activities of the IMISCOE PhD Network. It is the place where young scholars can meet each other, ask questions, and discuss opportunities opened to the PhDs from all over the world. Although we all struggle in our new “online” reality, academia became more inclusive for those scholars who do not have means to travel. The question is how we can learn from this digitalization and creatively bring this inclusiveness forward in the coming years. In the open and honest conversation, we will reflect on benefits of digitalization and think about practical steps to be able keep academia as inclusive as it can be.
