 VDS CoBeNe Education

The VDS CoBeNe educational program is designed to:

  • reflect the range of its fields
  • allow in-depth training in the specific research field, and
  • to experience training in transferable skills and scientific exchange

Furthermore, it is designed to allow a high degree of flexibility in terms of what to get the credits for (e.g., specific training in concepts/methods, transferable skills, or presenting at national and international conferences, but in any case adhering to the individual curricula and required ECTS.



When: Wednesday - Friday, 1st - 3rd February 2023
Where: University of Vienna, Main Building, Universitätsring 1, 1010 Vienna

The second PhD academy was a great success - For the first time PhD candidates were able to present their impressive and divers projects in person to each other. We had 200 registered participants. 55 oral presentations by PhD candidates, 20 poster presentations by Master students and 4 plenary talks by invited alumni as well as a panel discussion. The PhD academy was a great sucess for all groups involved (PhD students, PIs, alumni, master students and peers) and has already become the central social, communicative and scientific event of the VDS CoBeNe.
