GCB Symposium

As part of the doctoral training, the GCB organizes an annual symposium for all PhD candidates and their thesis committees. From the 13th month after registering in the GCB, doctoral candidates are offered the opportunity to present their research projects in the form of posters or brief lectures. GCB PhD Students who are required to participate: those who have been registered in the GCB 12 or more months and who have not participated at least twice. Important to note: Due to popular demand, participants must no longer register in KSL. Participation in the event may be listed on your CV, but will not be part of your KSL planning or diploma supplement.
