PhD organizations

The following PhD organizations are active in Groningen:

  • GOPHER (Groningen Organization for PhD Education and Recreation) is the PhD organization of the University of Groningen, providing a platform for PhD students to develop themselves, to network and to get to know fellow PhD students through educational and recreational events. Every PhD student is welcome to participate in GOPHER’s events and to suggest and organize new events. If you wish to get involved or just join the events, please contact the board at or join the Gopher Facebook group for more information. If you are a new PhD student at the University of Groningen, you can find additional practical information on the Gopher website .
  • GRIN (Groningen Graduate Interest Network) is the organization by PhD candidates from the University of Groningen that stands up for the legal and administrative interests of all the PhD candidates at Groningen. Our main goal is to inform you about the types of PhD and their individual rights and obligations, and to support you with presenting concerns related to these areas to the respective authorities. Our website will inform you on the different issues related to being a PhD in Groningen and of different events organized by GRIN and other groups related to PhD rights and PhD career development. If you wish to get involved or if you have any questions or suggestions, please write to us to
