 MGC symposium - 12 September, 2019 

Each year the MGC organizes a one day symposium for their members. The program of the symposium consists of 13 scientific lectures presented by promising, mainly young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) from the different MGC departments. Also the best presenter at the MGC PhD student workshop is invited to give a presentation. The scientific part of the day is capped by a keynote speaker and the symposium is concluded with drinks and small bites or a walking dinner.
