Friday Talk at Faculty of Engineering

For employees and students at the Faculty of Engineering.

We would like to welcome employees and students at the faculty to weekly webinars! The purpose of this webinar series is to stimulate academic and free discussions on important topics in research, innovation and education, and also to provide a team- and culture-building arena at the IV Faculty.

When: Fridays 08.30-09.00 (except holidays, summer vacation, cramped days).
Where: Teams (link to come soon)

We encourage all the departments at the faculty to report contributions (topic, speaker and time) through their representative in the IV Research Committee.
