IKOS PhD Kick-off seminar fall 2019
Welcome to Kick-off seminar 14 October 2019!
This years title will be: Theory, Method, Material
The yearly kick-off seminar for the PhD-program is a bit late this year, since we wanted as many of the PhDs as possible to have settled in. Due to the many projects landed by IKOS researchers, we have a large and growing cohort of PhDs, who are crucial for IKOS as a dynamic place for innovative and cutting-edge research. The point of the kick-off is for all of us to meet and talk about our projects, PhDs, PDs, and permanent staff. But it also gives us a chance to think about what we have in common and what we can do to strengthen that. That is why the theme of the kick-off will be the three things we all necessarily share, and indeed, that are the three absolutely indispensable ingredients of any good research project: Theory, Method, Material.
