Annual Conferences

The annual conferences are the primary forum for promoting interaction among members with their common field of interest.

Conferences are the opportunity to discuss best practices, to support members with less experience within the area, and to develop best practices for PhD training.

Conferences are also an opportunity to meet with major stakeholders and to influence the political development of PhD training in Europe and worldwide.

Members have reduced registration. PhD students are welcome, also as contributors.
