INGENIO have held between Monday and Wednesday the first ever virtual edition of the INGENIO PhD Days; an event that aims to contribute to the development of research capabilities, presentation and communication skills, as well as to build networks among a new generation of researchers (PhD students as well as early career researchers). 40 early career researchers of different countries attended to the event.


This Monday, 14th of December, we celebrate the first virtual edition of INGENIO PhD Days. This event aims to contribute to the development of research capabilities, presentation and communication skills, as well as to build networks among a new generation of researchers (PhD students as well as early career researchers). For this edition, we have been working alongside with Teje Redes, experts on collaborative methodologies, in order to keep on the interactive spirit of the event and to make of this an active virtual conference! PhD Days will be held between 14th and 16th of December.
