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.
Impulse 2022 takes place online via ZOOM on January 27th and 28th, 2022.
