GOPHER stands for ‘Groningen Organisation for PhD Education and Recreation’. GOPHER is an organisation run by PhD students. As an organisation, we organise recreational and educational events that bring PhD students from different faculties together. Many of the educational events that are organised are beneficial for the development of a PhD student, but are not offered in the educational programmes of the Graduate Schools, HR services and related institutions. GOPHER is run by an organising committee consisting of PhD students acting on a voluntarily basis (now recruiting new members ). For more information and events contact them through, find them on Facebook or visit their website
