Research and Academic Fair

The Research & Academic Fair (R&A Fair) provides an invaluable opportunity for participants to explore potential avenues in research and academia. Taking place during lunch on Tuesday, this event differs from traditional career fairs by featuring research institutions and master educational programs instead of only companies.

Participants will have the chance to engage with representatives from esteemed institutions such as the Graduate School of Medical Sciences, the Biomedical Sciences Master program, and HTRIC (Healthy Technology Research & Innovation Cluster) and Lifelines. This setting offers a unique platform for participants to gain insights into the research landscape of Groningen and explore the various educational opportunities available, like a potential master or PhD.

Similar to the Career and Internship fair, participants can ask a wide range of questions tailored to their interests. They can inquire about the nature of research projects, potential areas for specialization, and opportunities for professional growth within the academic community in Groningen. Understanding the mission and objectives of these institutions can help participants align their academic aspirations with the offerings of each program.

Moreover, attendees can learn about the specific roles and responsibilities of researchers and graduate students within these organizations. By gaining clarity on the expectations and learning outcomes associated with research and academic programs, participants can make informed decisions about their educational and career paths.
