Impulse – Getting started and connected

Kick-off event for doctoral candidates

Impulse – Getting started and connected is an event especially for new doctoral candidates. Once a year, all doctoral candidates who have started their dissertation at TU Darmstadt in the past twelve months, are invited to participate.

This event aims at bringing together doctoral candidates from all departments of the university right from the start. Getting to know people who are in the same situation and finding out about the wide variety of services for doctoral candidates provided by different institution of the university are the major goals.

The invitation will be distributed in fall. Information will be provided by the Ingenium Newsletter, several mailing lists and the Ingenium Website.

See you at Impulse 2021!
