Strong PhD Day

The Strong Group held a vibrant PhD Day May 12, at the Arbejdermuseet / The Workers Museum in central Copenhagen. The event joined the entire group and a number of visitors, and the day was filled with talks by all the Strong PhD students as well as visiting PhD and Master students, followed by a question and answer session. The program included an introduction to the museum, its history and its role in Danish society, as well as a traditional Danish lunch.
