The 2nd SFB 1102 PhD Day

The Second PhD Day for SFB 1102 has six talks lasting half an hour each. Doktoranden are presenting their work before the whole SFB to receive feedback from colleagues they don’t usually interact with, providing an opportunity to strengthen their work. The talks focus on the students’ work as it relates to their thesis, rather than framing the work solely in terms of a particular SFB project.We look forward to your stimulating questions and thoughtful comments!
