FSDR Stammtisch: BBQ at the Danube

2018-07-18

To connect doctoral candidates from different research areas and faculties, Fachschaft Doktorat offers a so-called “Stammtisch”. A Stammtisch is a meeting in a restaurant or pub, where we get together, enjoy some cold drinks and discuss various issues related to doctoral studies.

During the summer months we'd like to offer you something special: FSDR reserved a BBQ-place close to the Danube Island! Bring your own drinks and food and meet some fellow PhD students at this relaxing place. And don't forget your swimming clothes!

In case of unfavorable weather we booked an alternative date. Further information will be announced at Facebook and on our homepage.

When: Tuesday 24th of July from 5pm

Where: Grillplatz 8, find the map here.

2018-06-25
Plagiarism is a common topic throughout academia and a particularly important one for PhD candidates. Have you ever asked yourself, what distinguishes plagiarism from copyright? And what about self-plagiarism? To shed some light on these questions, FSDR is organizing a lecture on plagiarism in PhD studies. This lecture will be held by Meinhard Novak, an external attorney and expert on plagiarism. The lecture is held in German language.

After the lecture there will be enough time to answer your questions in detail.

The PhD movies and cartoons by Jorge Cham are renown for their tragicomical portray of life as a PhD student. It is a great opportunity to meet fellow PhD students and come together. Interested?
