Annual EPP Day 19 April 2024
EPP Symposium 155

Every year, the EPP board commissions the organization of an annual EPP-day, in collaboration with the EPP educational committee. It is strongly recommended that all EPP researchers attend this special event. The main aim of the conference is to facilitate a platform where EPP members (both juniors and seniors) can meet and exchange ideas in an inspiring atmosphere. This year, we have invited 5 researchers who will provide an up-to-date overview of their research lines. They will each give a talk of about 25 minutes, leaving 10 minutes for questions. We strongly encourage PhD students to ask questions in order to stimulate the interaction between the speaker and the audience. In addition, the annual prize for the best academic paper (de artikelprijs) is handed out to a promising young researcher.
