After an introduction to their research subject, the PhD students presented their research questions and methods, time and publication plan, challenges, possible risks and ethical aspects of their work. After each presentation, a panel of senior researchers from other subjects cross-examined the student, and the audience could ask questions as well.
As already during autumn 2020, the seminar had to be held online and we could not have our usual get-together celebration at the end of the day. We will make up for this at a later occasion!
In addition to the presentation, each PhD student had prepared a poster about his or her project. A jury nominated the best poster, which this time was the one from Iván Mantilla from the Urban Water Group. He got a certificate and a price consisting of an LTU hoody. The posters are displayed between the lunch and coffee room and will remain there until the next round of new PhD students graduates from the Intro School during autumn 2021.
