The PNN National PhD Day is coming!

What: National PhD Day
Where: Tilburg University
When: 24thof November 2018

Dear fellow PhD candidates,

Would you like to meet fellow PhD candidates from all around the country? Do you want to learn how to communicate with your supervisor and peers more effectively? Do you feel like sharing and begin to tackle challenges you encounter during your PhD trajectory?


For four years now, PhD Candidates Network of the Netherlands (PNN) has organized the National PhD Day. The National PhD Day has proved to be a great opportunity to meet and learn for PhD candidates from all around the country and from all scientific fields.

We are happy to invite you for the fifth edition of the National PhD Day. The National PhD Day will take place at the Tilburg University on the 24thof November 2018. The event will evolve around the theme “STAY CONNECTED”. We will explore how to stay connected with your supervisor, network, and importantly yourself (e.g. with regard to mental health) during your PhD. The workshops and peer learning sessions will cover topics like networking, mindfulness, communication skills and others. Registration for the National PhD Day will be open soon. But already now you can:
