It's Stammtisch time again


To connect doctoral candidates from different research areas and faculties, Fachschaft Doktorat offers a socalled “Stammtisch”. A Stammtisch is a meeting in a restaurant or pub, where we get together and talk about issues related to doctoral studies. Our upcoming FSDR Stammtisch will take place at the Wieden Bräu (www.wieden-braeu.at). If the weather is nice, we are going to be in the outdoor area. The most important topic we are going to discuss is the change of the regulations regarding the choice of the PhD thesis assessors which has been made recently. Further we are going to connect the Stammtisch with our opening hours. If you have questions regarding the doctoral study at TU Wien, please join us in Wieden Bräu.

When: Tuesday, 5 July 2016 at 6 p.m.
Where: Wieden Bräu (www.wieden-braeu.at)

See you there!
