Outline of the Day

The PhD Day aims at stimulating scientific discussions and improve networking. During this event, there will be a variety of keynote speakers, PhD-student elevator pitches and breaks allowing time for networking. The scientific part of the day will culminate with rewards for the best talks that will be chosen by the audience on Zoom. A detailed program as well as keynote speakers and PhD student talks will be regularly updated.

Aims of the PhD Day

The PhD Day was founded in 2012.


A central aim is the dissemination of own research to a broad audience with biological background. As part of this, each participant, whether giving a talk or presenting a poster, is encouraged to join in constructive discussions and dialogue.


The event seeks to stimulate networking and novel interdisciplinary collaborations. It is therefore most conducive that this day includes a broad range of staff members, including BSc and MSc students, PhD students, junior researchers, VIPs and TAPs.


As a significant social and scientific event, the PhD Day aims to both bridge the gap between research groups and sections as well as strengthen community spirit among PhD students.


By offering a feature on communication of science and by the above-mentioned aims, the PhD Day seeks to support PhD students’ work and career.
