About the event
The PhD Students' Council of the University of Warsaw kindly invites PhD candidates of the 4EU+ Alliance and other universities and institutes, as well as all interested individuals to participate in the Doctoral Festival of Open Science (DFON).
What is the Doctoral Festival of Open Science? It's event which aims to disseminate scientific studies of young researchers. It is also intended to introduce the world of science to people who are not involved in academia on a daily basis, but are passionate about acquiring new knowledge. The speakers (who are currently pursuing their doctorates) will present selected topic in an interesting and accessible way within 5-10 minutes.
The speeches are addressed to everyone who is interested in broadening their scientific horizon in the field of humanities, social sciences, exact and natural sciences and interdisciplinary fields, as well as to the university communities of the 4EU+ alliance, i.e. the European Union: University of Warsaw (Poland), Charles University (Czech Republic), Heidelberg University (Germany), Sorbonne University (France), University of Copenhagen (Denmark) and University of Milan (Italy).
The official languages of the event are Polish and English.
The festival will be mainly held online (on the ZOOM platform) from 16th to 18th of September, 2021. The day of the conference is planned in a hybrid mode (if the epidemic situation allows it).
