PhD Café »Open Air«, 21 June 2022

Please note that the PhD Café will be held if the weather is nice because we will meet outside. If the weather doesn't permit us to meet outside, we will cancel the event. 

We cordially invite doctoral and PhD researchers from all areas!

There will be drinks & snacks!


Learn more about our new services & opportunities, and meet our guest researchers.

This will be the first time to meet on location since the corona pandemic. We would like to give you information about our new services and opportunities and introduce you to our guest researchers. The Graduate Research School has awarded BTU Flagship Fellowships to various postdoctoral researchers from abroad. They will be happy to share their experience with you. Furthermore, we would like to discuss with you your current needs and questions.

What is the PhD Café?

The main goal of the PhD Café is to meet and network with colleagues from all areas in a relaxed atmosphere. We want to present BTU's services for doctoral candidates and other specific topics. We also want to invite guests so that you can ask questions, discuss and get to know each other. Your suggestions and ideas are welcome!
