Student-mentor-mixer EWDA 12th Conference

The Student Chapter board is organising the student-mentor-mixer evening, taking place on the 30th August from 18 to 21pm. This is an informal event, to provide students a chance to meet and chat with EWDA professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds and to meet fellow students from around Europe and beyond.

Mentors invited are familiar with previous similar sessions and with tutoring students, and they accepted our invitation promptly.

There will be 6 tables, each with a particular research field and 1 to 3 mentors. Accordingly, 6 rounds of approx. 20 minutes will take place and the idea is that students change table each round and get the chance to talk to all mentors. Drinks and snacks will be available at the beginning of the sessions and between rounds.

The approximate schedule will be as follows:

18-18.20 Welcome, drinks & snacks

18.20-18.30 Introduction by EWDA student board

18.30-18.50 Round 1

18.50-19.10 Round 2

19.10-19.30 Round 3

19.30-19.50 Round 4

19.50-20.10 Round 5

20.10-20.30 Round 6

20.30-21 Leisure time
