Work hard, play hard! As important as your career and academics are, engaging in social activities gives you a well-earned break from working.

Our Social-team facilitates a varied social life as it is (scientifically!) proven to be one of the basic human needs. They have made it their mission to connect PhD students from various fields in a relaxing and fun atmosphere. You’ll be able to build your own robust and accessible social network you can rely on, while working on your PhD.

We invite you to participate in a whole spectrum of activities throughout the year, ranging from small-scaled gatherings to larger scaled parties. Our Social-team makes sure there is something in it for everyone, so come and join us at our social meetings!
