Series of afternoon talks on general academic culture

AIAS and the Junior Researcher Development Programme at Aarhus University are organizing a series of “Afternoon talks” on general academic culture in 2018.

2018.04.24 | AIAS

The purpose of the academic talks is to stimulate academic debate and strengthen networks across disciplines and academic areas among junior researchers at the university in general and between international AIAS fellows and researchers at Aarhus University.

Two researchers from Aarhus University will give a short talk on a specific academic issue followed by discussion and the possibility to network. Each talk will be a two-hour session, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm.

Everybody is welcome to participate in the events but registration is needed. Registration is based on a first-come first-served basis. See the programme and dates for the talks below and register online via the links.
