International Women’s Day at the UT will be celebrated with a four-day programme from 7th until 10th of March. The planned series of events include a march, a networking fair and presentations about women’s health.
The annual P-NUT PhD & EngD Day will be held on 24th February in DesignLab. Carrying the theme ‘Research & Sustainability in times of crisis’, the event for doctoral candidates includes hands-on activities, such as a workshop on how to deal with stress.
Results of a well-being survey show that UT doctoral candidates are impacted by loneliness and wish for more sense of belonging. The survey was conducted by the EQUITY working group from P-NUT (PhD Network of the University of Twente) from December 2021 to February 2022.
Students or researchers? PhD and PDEng candidates fall into a category of their own. What is it like to navigate the sometimes lonely road towards a doctoral degree? In this monthly series, we put young academics of the University of Twente in the limelight. This episode gives the stage to Verena Menzel from the Mathematics of Operations Research group.
