AGFO-106 AGFOREE's own research seminar
Many of today’s challenges and research puzzles can only be tackled by collaborative efforts across multiple scientific disciplines, and our monthly AGFOREE research seminar is a reflection of this. In this seminar, AGFOREE doctoral candidates have the chance to present their findings and insights to a highly diverse and multidisciplinary audience. Presenters are asked to keep in mind this diversity - the audience will have to understand something that might be far out of their own discipline or comfort zone as well as to make sure that their passion and excitement for their research is shared with the audience.
Held on the first Tuesday of each month from 14.15-15.45

Courses which teach so called 'transferable skills' useful for career stages of both professional researchers and other scientific positions are organised by the Doctoral School in Environmental, Food and Biological Sciences (YEB).
Other doctoral schools offer similar types of courses which you may participate in if they are not full.
