Virtual Lecture Series and Early Career Networking Hour 2023

Del 24 de gener al 27 d'abril de 2023

Online - Zoom

The Societal Challenges Lecture Series is aimed at early career researchers with a two-fold objective: delivering cutting-edge academic analysis on the diverse problems of our times, and providing international networking opportunities for doctoral researchers and postdocs. The lecture series aims at providing an antidote to impulsive disaster talk through perceptive academic analysis. Outstanding researchers within the Aurora University Alliance will give engaging online lectures during the academic year 2023 within two of the Aurora priority domains:

  1. Digital Society & Global Citizenship
  2. Health & Well-Being

Delivered online via Zoom, each event begins with a 30-45 minute lecture by an outstanding researcher. Following the talk, you will have the opportunity to discuss the lecture, formulate questions for the speaker, and network in breakout rooms for 20 minutes. Finally, audience and speaker reconvene for a well-prepared, stimulating Q&A. Visit the lecture series webpage to find the lecture series program and information on how to join each individual session.
