The fifth meeting of the "Future Doctoral Programme" task force takes place on Tuesday, 1 September 2015 at 12 p.m. in Nelson's. All doctoral candidates are invited to work on a new guideline, which will be the basis for the future course of the doctoral programme at TU Wien. The guideline will be presented and discussed in the curricular committee meeting in October 2015.


The next "Stammtisch" for doctoral candidates at TU Wien takes place on Tuesday 24 February 2015 at 6.15 p.m. in Nelson's. A Stammtisch is a meeting of doctoral candidates in a restaurant or pub, where we get together talk about issues concerning doctoral candidates. The topic for this Stammtisch is work contracts and terms of employment. As this topic covers various themes, it will be up to you where the discussion leads to.

You are welcome to participate. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
