TNDR Board Meeting

Geocentrum-Luftrummet GL332

The TNDR Board discussed the issues, that representatives of PhD students encounter during their sessions with the unions/organizations. It's not an easy task to be a representative, but definetly a great opportunity to know more about issues and narrow spots of the PhD life. An important topic on "Chapter and Code", currently introduced at Uppsala University was discussed. More on the meeting see in Scanned minutes!
