What is PhD Day?

PhD Day is an annual event held by PhD students in Groningen for fellow PhD students. Through this event, you are invited to broaden your research and career perspective (also outside of academia!), and close the gap between academia and industry practice from different disclipinary and cultural backgrounds.

In short: It's not just an event - it's a dynamic day of inspiration, networking, and expanding your future opportunities.

PhD students can participate in a variety of workshops and talks featuring top professionals from inside and outside of academia from different expertise.

Curious to see what they have in store for you this year? Watch this space for updates! Registration link will open up soon.

With over 700 PhDs there, a mix of early-stage researchers and people who are soon done with their PhD, a mix of Dutch and international, it's an insanely high-potential event for local companies to engage with and potentially hire highly skilled talent.

Why is this event relevant for your companies?
PhD graduates are experienced in performing innovative and goal-oriented research and have gained considerable professional skills, such as communication, creative and critical thinking, teamwork, project management, data literacy, teaching and mentoring, and networking.

So don’t wait any longer and sign up: This event is the perfect opportunity for you to meet new talent and make your company visible during a dynamic day full of keynotes, workshops, speed dating and networking opportunities.
