The Annual AGREC PhD Conference 2010
The Research School in Agriculture and Ecology (AGREC) aims at improving PhD education, stimulating new research and increasing interactions within the Department of Agriculture and Ecology including contacts to external partners.
One of the key activities of AGREC is an annual research conference, where all PhD students are invited to present some results of their work. Presentations can be oral or as posters and they will release 2 ECTS points.
The style of the presentations should aim at a non-specialist audience, emphasizing the general aspects of on-going research. This would also help increasing networking with other PhD students and senior researchers. The planning group has provided guidelines and information on printing possibilities.
There will be ample opportunities for discussions and feed-back, and the PhD students should understand the conference as a good opportunity for training their presentation skills and marketing scientific results.
Head of AGREC Johannes Kollmann says, that he is convinced that the AGREC Annual Conference will become one of the most successful events within the Department.
