During this day, you will receive information about the doctoral schools, doing a PhD at Hasselt University and research data management. You will hear testimonies of PhD students in various phases of their PhD trajectory and of PhD holders working in and outside academia. In the afternoon, you can attend one of three parallel workshops, which will give you an idea of the type of activities offered by the doctoral schools. More information is available here.
