#ErasmusDays EMMIR Virtual Meet-Up 2020

What is this? In the absence of a real-life EMMIR gathering in 2020, we would instead like to invite everyone in our EMMIR network to EMMIR's 3-Day Virtual Meet-Up! Coinciding with #ErasmusDays, EMMIR is organising 6 different virtual sessions over 3 days and inviting students and alumni to join as many of the sessions as they'd like.


How do I join? Check the schedule, see which events you're interested in, check your email for the links, and see you there! Links to the virtual event will be sent ahead of time to the last-known email addresses that students and alumni have registered with EMMIR. If you have not received an email from EMMIR regarding this event, please email us at emmir(at)uol(dot)de. 

Do I have to join all of the events? No, feel free to join however many you are able and willing to.


Can non-EMMIRians join: This event is only open to students and alumni (as well as other interested consortium partners).

All times are set in Oldenburg time (CEST). Please note that the sessions are subject to minor changes beforehand.

Saturday, 17 October

On Saturday, you'll have the chance to connect on a more personal level in smaller-group settings with like-minded people. For example, you may find collaborators for research projects on your same topics of interest, or people working in the same sector as you! Simultaneous sessions will take place and as a participant, you are free to join whichever you'd like.
