De Oosterpoort, Groningen

Are you a PhD-student and do you want to know how the hidden high-tech diamonds of Innovation Cluster Drachten can boost your career? Then come to PhD Day 2019 on 20 September in Groningen.

Talking to PhD-students at PhD-day 2018

The PhD-Day is a day for all PhD-students from all fields and nationalities, although master and postdoc students are more than welcome as well. PhD-students aim to create a special day with keynote lectures, panel discussion, workshops, a career fair and a festival and dinner to experience together with hundreds of like-minded PhD students. This is not another academic conference, this is their day! And Innovationcluster Drachten is there, with a workshop about hidden hightech diamonds and how the ICD can boost their career.

The motto of this years edition is Keep your light on, as an invitation to stay motivated and engaged. By being conscious of themselves, the human being behind the PhD student, and by creating a safe, tolerant and enriched social environment, they can become happy and successful researchers.
