Time 08:30 10:30
Location Richard Mortensen Stuen., Building 1422, Studenterhus Aarhus

We are often asked in the PhD & JR Career service how to approach and interact with industry. Join this workshop and learn how to build a network through steps, that are easy to manage and combine with your research position.

This event is relevant for you no matter where you plan to go after your PhD. An industry network will benefit both a career in the private sector and in academia.


  • What is networking?
  • What can you use a network for? And not use it for?
  • How do you get in touch with the people, you would like to network with?
  • What can you offer a network as a PhD / JR?
