It is our great pleasure to invite you to join the RaBBiT (Radiation Biology and Biophysics Training Doctoral Programme) Meeting 2022. This will be a short three days event (May 9th to 11th) covering:
- the value of a PhD and career expectations;
- cross-disciplinary and complementary training:
- network creation, international collaborations and infrastructure availability:
- and, obviously, science.
The event will be held at FCT NOVA library auditorium (free registration required) and also through live streaming (just join in and ask questions).
Monday 9th we'll be discussing how to achieve excellence in doctoral training, the importance of PhD degrees, how they can influence one's career and our society in general. We are fortunate to have the presence of Professor Manuel Heitor (IST, UL), who has been deeply involved in scientific, technological and innovation policies as well as Higher Education as a political decision-maker (since 2005, and in particular in the last 7 years).
Also on Monday, we will have the participation of Professor Patrícia Rosado Pinto (UNL), who will share with us the success of NOVA’s Doctoral School, and a talk by José Moura about the changing role of academic libraries and partnerships with students, researchers and the general community.
The day will end with a presentation from Professor Richard Zare (Stanford University) entitled “The Road to Success”.
Tuesday 10th will be the keynote day, dedicated to four scientific presentations by Professors David Field (Aarhus University), Bruno Guigliarelli (Aix-Marseille Université), Richard Zare (Stanford University) and Stephen Buckman (Australian National University).
On Wednesday 11th, there will be three presentations from RaBBiT’s students and a presentation of European infrastructure in the area of biophysics (MOSBRI).
