PhD Café

The PhD Café is a regular event organized by the University Library. The Café provides short talks and enables discussion with your peers about topics that will pave the way for more smooth PhD studies. Topics cover stress management, project planning, worklife balance, support function at SDU, etc. Moreover, you will get opportunity to present your PhD at special events. All events will be held in Philoteket, the Library’s facilities for PhD students, with ample time for network!
