Below is an overview of the activities organized specifically for PhD students affiliated to the Doctoral School of Sciences & Technology in 2021. Most activities are also open for postdocs. 

As soon as the necessary information is available, you can click the title in order to get more details about content, target group, registration and practical arrangements. All activities are in English, unless explicitly mentioned otherwise.

An important part of preparing for further professional steps is becoming (more) aware of the competences you have developed and/or want to develop. Therefore, the detail page of each course mentions the competences from the UHasselt competency overview for PhD holders that are actively dealt with within the course. The table below mentions the main competency cluster for each activity.
