No matter whether you are at the beginning of your doctorate or already in the middle of a postdoc project, research brings with it many a challenge that does not stop even in Corona times. Together with your PhD candidates and postdoc representative, we bring you together with your peer group at Connect@PoGS. Here you can exchange ideas, questions and discuss your current topics. What solutions have you found? What support do you need? In addition to your peer group, PoGS is also looking forward to your comments and suggestions.

On December 6, 2021 our Connect@PoGS X-mas edition event took place with the theme Networking in the digital age via Zoom.

Event language: English
