On the eve of the 2018 Utrecht Conference on Earth System Governance, we organize Welcome Drinks for early career scholars in the Utrecht University Hall, right in the heart of the historic city center. This event marks the end of the Utrecht Winter School on Earth System Governance 2018, as well as the beginning of the conference week. Here, we provide an informal setting in which early career scholars can meet while enjoying a drink and a bite – the perfect way to start the 2018 conference! All early career researchers are invited!
Where: Academiegebouw, room 1636
When: Sunday 4 November, 17:00 – 19:00
Attention! Due to a number of cancellations and conflict schedules, we had to make minor adjustments to the conference programme. The second version of the programme can be found here.
Wednesday 7 November ends with an informal Research Fellow Party at one of Utrecht’s nicest pop venues EKKO. All conference participants are invited! We have a stage available for free that we’d like to share with you. Please contact Karlijn at email@example.com before 24 September if you would like to display your musical, theatre or poetry talents and stand out from the academic crowd.
