Plant Science Networking Event

February 28 @ 12:00 - March 1 @ 13:00

Lund University, University of Copenhagen, SLU Alnarp and PlantLink are organising a networking event for PhD students and postdocs within plant sciences and would like to invite you to participate!

The event is going to be organised in a format of a lunch-to-lunch conference with the main theme around career after the PhD. A lot of our focus is on the transition between the academia and industry, skills required to work in the private sector and the possibility to establish contacts with the company representatives.

The first day is going to include speed dating and mingle which are going to be an opportunity for you to present and advertise your company and for the students to talk about possibility of future employment. For this purpose we will use Grip – Event Networking App which is an application used to create professional networks, set up business meetings and start collaborations in an easy and efficient fashion. All of the participants will get an access to the application for free.

The idea is that the first day is going to be focused on the possibilities after the PhD/postdoc education and establishing professional networks, while on the second day the students get to know each other and present their research in a form of posters (please see the preliminary schedule below). You are very welcome to participate in all parts including the dinner and overnight stay at the hotel, however it is also possible to only participate during the afternoon on the first day.

We have currently 50 participants and the registration is not closed yet!


To register contact us at: phdcareerevent@slu.se


Hope to see you in Ystad!
