IMPORTANT

'Certificate stop' over summer

From October on, we will use a new system for requesting and providing acknowledgement for activities within the framework of the minimal requirements of the doctoral schools. The procedure will be simplified and digitalized.

In order to allow for sufficient time to digitalize the files / certificates of all current PhD students (> 550), there will be a 'certificate stop' over summer. This implies that from June 18, until October, it will not be possible to apply for certificates. Thus, if you attend activities that could be used to fulfill the doctoral school requirements during this period, please keep all information filed until we start using the new procedure. The documents needed to provide 'proof' (e.g., proof of attendance) will remain largely unchanged.

The only exception on the certificate stop is made for people planning to defend their PhD in 2018. Obviously, if your defense is coming up and you still need some certificates, we will make sure that you receive them. Also, pending certificates (i.e., certificates already applied for before June 19) will still be dealt with.


CALL

Doe mee aan de Vlaamse PhD Cup

Ben je in het voorbije anderhalf jaar tot doctor gepromoveerd? Dan daagt de Vlaamse PhD Cup je uit om je onderzoek met iedereen te delen: zonder voetnoten of specialistentaal, maar gebracht als een helder verhaal. Na een intensieve mediatraining volgt de ultieme test: “Kan jij de kern van je doctoraat in drie minuten uitleggen?”

Alle info en voorwaarden op www.phdcup.be - Inschrijven kan t.e.m. 31 juli.


IN THE PICTURE

Wingmen College 

Congratulations to Sabine Langie and Elke Ielegems for winning Wingmen College

Science figured out

Scientists thrive in their trusted environment, whether it's their lab, their office space or the stage at a scientific conference. Science Figured Out takes young researchers out of their comfort zones and places them in front of a camera with a clear assignment: share your passion for research with the general public! Tell us about your research in a clear and convincing 3-minute pitch. The first results (also from UHasselt researchers) are available on www.sciencefiguredout.be.
