A big congratulations to Dan Wang, PhD student at IREES. Dan Wang is one of the 9 PhD students that received the Sustainable Society PhD grant this year.
Each year PhD students from the University of Groningen can apply for the Sustainable Society PhD Grant. This grant is intended to enable PhD candidates to gain relevant experience during their doctoral programme, to broaden their network and to further promote their research. The aim is to enable them to acquire additional experience on top of their regular activities. In total 9 PhD students received a grant this year.
These grants were awarded during a digital Grant Ceremony on 12 November 2020. Winners were asked to prepare a pitch to present their research during the ceremony. The PhD candidate with the best and most persuasive pitch will receive a bonus prize: the possibility to visualize his/her research by a professional designer. This visualization will serve the goal of increasing and stimulating the visibility and impact of PhD research.
