'Meet the Experts' with Invited Speakers
When is it on?
Thursday 13th February from 12:00-1:00 PM.
What to expect?
It’s like a speed dating, but not so awkward, and it’s full of useful career hacks, advice, and EVs.
The second edition of The Meet the Expert session aims to provide a fun, relaxed and informal opportunity for PhD students and ECRs to pose questions and share ideas on the direction of their research, careers, and future opportunities with leaders in the EV field. The “expert speed dating” session will run for 1 – 1.5 hours over lunchtime. Invited speakers will be stationed at a table where they will be joined by 6-8 ECRs and PhD students. Every 8 minutes, a bell will ring and students will move to another speed date to maximise the interaction. Each expert will have a broad topic area to discuss (off-topic conversations are also allowed) so students will be exposed to a range of topics over the session.
