Finally, the PhD students had the opportunity to meet.

After having starting our research school online, it was finally possible to arrange two days together. During two days at the Sigtuna Foundation, several invited speakers talked about topics that the attendees will need to know about during their four years as PhD students. Among other things, those who attended learned about the organization and governance of Uppsala University and of Swedish research as well as Swedish workplace culture. They also got to take part of an inspiring presentation about life as a PhD student and its challenges. Together, we spent two, fully scheduled days that were much appreciated.
