The BMS PhD Initiative Group was born in September 2015 out of a joint action with four of my PhD colleagues (Milana Korotka, Imke Lammers, Koen de Koning and Anna Priante) who belong to the IGS research institute at the University of Twente. Lately Stijn de Laat, Anique Scheerder and Lisa Bakir joined the initative group as well. The goal of our group is to strengthen the PhD network within and beyond BMS faculty, to facilitate multidisciplinary research and to organise regular events (such as informative presentations, interactive workshops with prominent experts and alumni, social events) to offer opportunities to socialise, to build bridges between departments, to strengthen collaboration with alumni and business, to exchange insights of research projects and to facilitate collaborations.
