November 27th 2015 - h. 10.30
The new cycle of the PhD Programs at the SZN, including the SZN-OU and the Italian Universities program, has started.
The new students have arrived and are ready to be formally introduced to the SZN scientific community.
During the Induction Meeting, that will take place of Friday, November 27th 2015, a presentation of the Program will be given and each student will give a short presentation of his project (see program).
PhD students are a very important form of investment for the SZN, both economically and scientifically, and they need our total support to achieve their goals.
One fundamental part of their training is the peer judgment and confrontation with more experienced researchers and for this reason, all the scientific personnel of SZN of any grade should participate to this meeting, to assure their support in terms of constructive critical assessment, advice and encouragement.
