HIGRADE Conference 2017 - Impressions


At the HIGRADE Conference 2017, 38 doctoral researchers presented short "pitches" (one minute speed talks) to advertise their posters. This part was followed by a poster session with intense discussions over coffee and snacks.
During the concluding award ceremony the best posters and the best poster pitch were honoured. In addition, the new HIGRADE alumni received their certificates and Prof. Erika Kothe gave an insight talk into her projects and career path.
