The aim of the PI Stories is to provide the opportunity to our PhD students to learn the success stories of some of the most talented researchers in the world. Each speaker will present a research project she led as a principal investigator. The presentation will cover the scientific scope of the project and the most important results the project achieved. We solicit the speakers also to share their own experience of turning a research idea into a successful project winning a competitive grant.
All meetings are open to PhD Students, Undergraduate and Master students enrolled at DISI, as well as to people interested in the proposed topics.
Free participation upon registration online.
