Event details of ABC Networking Event 2020
Date 26 June 2020
Time 15:00 -17:00

**  ABC Networking for once in a new format - meet online!  **

Connect with other ABC members virtually at this very first online ABC networking event.

Connecting with others has never been more important than now, and has always been the goal of the ABC Networking Day. Under these extraordinary circumstances, ABC stays true to its goal and we look forward to bringing together the ABC researchers in a virtual meeting.

You will have the chance to hear all about exciting research taking place in departments other than your own, to meet and greet other ABC members, to exchange views and opinions on scientific and current topics and to learn how other researchers are dealing with the current challenges. 

The ABC Networking Event provides you with the opportunity to discover all research treasures that ABC holds, and connect with other ABC researchers. All researchers (PhDs, post-docs,  assistant/associate/full professors) are invited to attend and actively participate.

The Networking Event will consist of:

  • ABC Pitch talks: Flash talks that are all about getting to know each other, to foster fresh collaborations, and, possibly, to team-up for grant proposals. In small groups you present your research and/or listen to and discuss all the great research ABC has to offer.
  • Networking session: in an informal atmosphere, the discussions continue in break-out rooms. These are small gatherings focused on a certain topic or just to get to know each other, it’s up to you!

We are looking forward to meeting you all online!
