PhD Colloquia

PhD Colloquia are an experience performed from 2016 to 2018 and were part of a project allowing our PhD students to invite some experts whose research activity was close to their studies. In this way they were given the opportunity of discussing personally with experts in their field of research. During the stay, the invited professor was asked to give an introductory seminar about his/her research which was meant to be accessible to all master and PhD students.

PhD Colloquia have been inactive in the last years but is planned to be resumed in the next future.
