PhD students & alumni festival

During your PhD time at the University of Salzburg you expand your existing knowledge, acquire new knowledge and prepare for your professional life.

Our aim is to connect current PhD candidates and PhD alumni and to create a network in the field of Geoinformatics and GIScience. You are not only our most important ambassadors, but you can continue to benefit from the scientific, social and cultural exchange of ideas with colleagues and teachers.

We are delighted to invite our PhD candidates and alumni to our first “Students & alumni festival” at the University of Salzburg.

Date: 27th April 2018,

Venue:  Library of the University of Salzburg, Aula, Hofstallgasse 2, 5020 Salzburg
