Each year the IIE programme organises the “PhD Conference”. This one-day event offers to PhD fellows the opportunity of presenting their research work and gather feedbacks on both the presentation style and the technical content of their work from other fellows and from the PhD Board. Also, it offers a unique opportunity to PhD fellows to meet people from the industry in order to discuss and explore future opportunities for collaborations.
The conference is structured in three stages:
- the Plenary Session, which aims at offering ideas and suggestions on how to successfully build a scientific research career within the industry, starting from a PhD;
- the scientific sessions, where PhD fellows present the research activities carried out in the previous 12 months to colleagues and tutors;
- the PhD Expo, where PhD fellows present new ideas, processes, systems and technological devices of practical interest to the industry.
