Welcome to Science Pop Up Expo 2020!

At SCIENCE POP UP EXPO PhD students and researchers will exhibit their research through short pitch-films. You will find information about their research, their projects and where they would like to collaborate with companies. Read about the researchers and their projects below. At the event, the 9th of December we facilitate online meetings between company representatives and the PhD students or researcher.
During the event, there will be a short introduction of the researchers and then there’s the possibility to have one on one meetings with them through Zoom.
Take this chance to meet a new employee, find a research project that you could be part of and expand your network!
