Tájékoztatás a Semmelweis Egyetemen tartandó személyes találkozók és személyes részvétellel megrendezett események megtartására


Dear PhD Students,

On behalf of the Doctoral Council of the Semmelweis University I cordially invite you to the PhD Scientific Days 2021.

Our University organizes this conference every year, where the students can report their research achievements and practice their presentation and discussion skills.

The PhD Scientific Days are also a great opportunity to initiate scientific collaborations or even friendships between young researchers representing the next generation of the scientific community.

It gives us an excellent opportunity to extend this initiative to our partner universities in Hungary, as well.

The conference also offers the opportunity for the recently established ÚNKP Excellency Scholarship holders to give the compulsory conference presentation for a larger audience.

It is a great pleasure to prepare for this program, since hopefully the conference will be the first gathering held also in- person for the Semmelweis PhD researchers' community after the covid pandemic.

I hope that many of you will accept this invitation and I am looking forward to seeing you in July 2021!

Prof. Dr. Zoltán Benyó
