National PhD Welcome Day

Are you one of the roughly 150 first-year PhD candidates doing research in Luxembourg? We would like to welcome you all and have you gathered!

What goes on in doctoral training and research in the country? What's life like in the Greater Region of Luxembourg? The second edition of the National PhD Welcome Day will help you find out and bring you in contact with peers from different disciplines!

The event will encompass the recently announced National OpenAIRE conference on Open Science and will be followed by a standing dinner.
