We are launching a podcast series!

At the Vienna Doctoral School of Pharmaceutical, Nutritional and Sport Sciences (VDS PhaNuSpo), enthusiastic and outstanding doctoral students work on innovative research projects that are relevant to society. The VDS PhaNuSpo encourages and supports doctoral students to establish a joint podcast project to create a space for the discussion of topics relevant in today’s society, such as women in science, forgotten research areas, multicultural collaboration, career plans, balancing doctoral studies and personal life, etc.

Would YOU like to discuss these and many more topics with experts and other PhD students?

Do YOU want to actively contribute to the launching of this NEW PODCAST designed by and for doctoral students (and also learn how to produce it)?

Then we would like to invite you to participate in the launch and first year of production of our podcast! The involved activities include agreeing upon the topics to discuss, gathering information, contacting and interviewing experts, recording and editing the podcast, and finally publishing it.

 Our podcast team has now been established

The first step of this team is to attend a podcast production workshop organised and run by OHWOW in July 2023. No previous experience is needed!
