The PhD day is a for all PhD students from all fields and nationalities. We aim to create a special day in which PhD students can learn and develop academically and personally. Keynote lectures, talks, workshops, a career fair and more to experience together with hundreds of mind-like PhD students. This is not another academic conference, this is our day. 

This year our motto is: “Keep your light on”, and it’s an invitation to stay motivated and engaged in our PhDs and life.

This year we want to highlight the importance of the physical and mental well-being of PhD students.

By being conscious of ourselves, the human being behind the PhD student, and by creating a safe, tolerant and enriched social environment we can become happy and successful researchers.

We are not just our PhD research, we are so much more 🙂

Keynote lectures by:


  • Dr. Heleen de Coninck– Environmental Science department at the Faculty of Science at Radboud University. Heleen will address the challenging societal and environmental problem of CLIMATE CHANGE.
