Some tips when planning your event
Our students and staff cover a wide range of academic fields, knowledge levels and interests, creating a dynamic arena for cross-disciplinary discussions.
Popular-science based events usually attract more people than traditional academic ones (a bit of a bummer, but true).
We want as many students and staff as possible to be able to attend, regardless of thematic knowledge or theoretical background. Keep this in mind when planning your event
Language? Bilingual or events in English makes it possible for international students and staff to attend. However, it is not a requirement.
A smashing title! An exciting, perhaps even provocative title can help grab the attention of your audience.
Format: Can the event be hosted in a new and inspiring way? Workshops, interactivity, quizzes or experiments are always appreciated!
Inter-/cross-/trans/multi-disciplinary - Yes please! Interested in connecting with another faculty or department? We are happy to connect you!
