The focus of the session is on the mental health and wellbeing of doctoral researchers, which is often overlooked, but demands urgent attention. Particularly due to the ongoing pandemic crisis, the need to focus on this area is becoming very clear.
The session will be organized virtually in the form of a moderated expert-panel discussion.
