Newsletter | Apr 24, 2020  

This newsletter provides an overview of all upcoming activities for PhD students organized by the doctoral schools, links to other potentially interesting events or information, and relevant calls.

More details on, and registration links for, upcoming activities are available on the websites of the doctoral schools. When you enrol for a doctoral school activity, please make sure to be present. You are allowed to cancel your enrolment up to 1 week before the activity by sending an email to doctoralschools@uhasselt.be. In case of no-show or cancellation later than 1 week before the activity, a fee of 250 euros can be charged. Details

Please note

All doctoral school activities taking place in May have either been digitalized or postponed to a later date in fall. For activities planned in June, July and August, we await further guidelines from both Hasselt University and the Belgian government.
For each specific workshop, course or information session, we aim to find the most appropriate solution, based on the activity’s content and duration, as well as on the preference and possibilities of the trainer/speaker(s). Participants are always notified by email on the decision which has been taken. For activities with upcoming registration deadlines, we have added information on the format below, as far as possible. The edition of PhDrinks that was planned on June 5 will be postponed to a yet to be determined date in Fall, as the main goal of this initiative is to (physically) bring people together.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at all times, on doctoralschools@uhasselt.be.
Thanks for your understanding and the best of luck in both your professional and personal life in these exceptional circumstances.


For all PhD students

CALL

De huidige crisis zet het belang van wetenschapscommunicatie extra in de verf. Het brede publiek heeft nood aan toegankelijke, wetenschappelijk gefundeerde informatie. Met onderscheidingen voor wetenschappers die hun inzichten helder en actief communiceren, willen De Koninklijke Vlaamse Academie van België voor Wetenschappen en Kunsten (KVAB) en de Jonge Academie daartoe bijdragen. De Academie reikt twee onderscheidingen uit:

  • De Loopbaanprijs bekroont een onderzoeker die gedurende haar of zijn hele loopbaan sterke inspanningen leverde voor wetenschapscommunicatie.
  • De Jaarprijzen worden toegekend aan onderzoekers die zich het voorbije jaar intensief hebben ingezet voor een concreet project rond wetenschapscommunicatie. Onder de jaarprijslaureaten wordt één ‘Jonge Belofte’ extra voor het voetlicht geplaatst, een jonge onderzoeker (geen team) die al excelleert in wetenschapscommunicatie en maximaal tien jaar geleden een doctoraat behaalde.

Aan UHasselt vinden heel wat initiatieven plaats rond wetenschapscommunicatie. Organiseerde jij of een collega-onderzoeker de voorbije twee jaren een project of tentoonstelling, nam je het initiatief voor een blog of originele app,...Misschien was je betrokken bij een creatief project met een originele insteek, dat sensibiliseerde en interesse voor wetenschappen wekte? Of ging je in interactie met het publiek in een duurzaam en actueel project? Stel je dan zeker kandidaat voor 27 april 2020

Meer informatie en de deelnameformulieren zijn hier beschikbaar. Gelieve deze voor 27 april te bezorgen aan els.smeyers@uhasselt.be.
