The Sustainable Society was present at the PhD Day with a booth to introduce participants to the Sustainable Society PhD Grants ceremony, which will be held on 16 November 2021. To spur young researchers to work on societal challenges, Sustainable Society offers a grant for University of Groningen PhD candidates.
