The PhD seminar at 2013 University-Industry Interaction Conference offers PhD students an opportunity for presenting and discussing their PhD projects in order to receive feedback, exchange views on their research in an inspiring academic setting of fellow PhD students and experienced researchers from related disciplines.
The PhD seminar will be held one day before the conference, on Monday 27th May 2013. The seminar will be hosted by Dr. Peter van der Sijde of VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
The workshop concept combines (I) individual presentations followed by group discussions, (II) a time slot for individual questions dedicated to specific faculty members, as well as (III) a reflection round in which the students present their learnings and outline their next steps to each other.
Each student will be part of a group of 4-5 five students. Each PhD project will be discussed in these groups during the workshop. Student presentation should be as short as possible, preferably 15 minutes, max. 20 Minutes, so that 2/3rd or more time is dedicated to discussions.
Aside from the presentations and groups discussions itself, the PhD workshop is meant to provide as much transparency as possible. For example:
