The aim of the International Doctoral Symposium is to provide a forum in which PhD students and PostDoc researchers can present the results of their research work. To reach these goals, the attending PhD students and PostDoc researchers will share their experience and findings through talks, poster sessions and discussions. The symposium also includes trainings focused on career development with lectures on research and functioning skills such as how to develop a good presentation, improve the academic writing and IPR issues.
