2nd International PhD Student’s Conference at the University of Life Sciences in Lublin, Poland

The University of Life Sciences in Lublin has the pleasure to invite you to the 2nd PhD Student’s Conference at the University in Lublin, Poland: „Environment-Plant-Animal-Product”, that will be held on 19-20th April 2023. The 1st day of the conference will be held at the University of Life Sciences in Lublin and it will have a hybrid format. Stationary events will be held at the Congress Hall and Conferences Hall of the University of Life Sciences in Lublin, Akademicka 15 street, Lublin. The 2nd day of the conference will be held in Janów Lubelski – interdisciplinary workshop (for stationary participants and only in Polish).

The Conference is an excellent opportunity to present result of latest research, exchange scientific ideas, share research experiences, as well as to establish interdisciplinary cooperation. We believe that the Conference will contribute to the creation of inter-university research teams, both national and international, and the integration of the doctoral students’ community. The conference program includes a plenary speech by an invited professor, oral and poster presentations of doctoral students from Poland and foreign research centers, and a competition for the best video on the subject of Greenwashing – a threat to ecology?

The interdisciplinary conference will include thematic sections in the following areas: agricultural, forestry and veterinary sciences, in the areas of biological and technical sciences as well as medical and health sciences.

Doctoral School of the University of Life Sciences in Lublin

Doctoral school of the University of Life Sciences in Lublin was established in 2019. PhD studies are conducted at the general academic, multidisciplinary Doctoral School. We offer a unique combination of interdisciplinarity and an advanced specialised curriculum. The Doctoral School of the University of Life Sciences in Lublin provides a joint course of study to all PhD students and a specialised programme for individual fields and disciplines. The uniform degree programme promotes the integration of the academic community, exchange of scientific experience and interdisciplinary perception of research problems. The added value of joint education is the open formula that allows PhD students constant scientific development and it enables the evolution of the Doctoral School according to the changing educational needs of the students of consecutive years. The path of specialised education for doctoral students is undertaken in collaboration with PhD thesis supervisors and the purpose of it is to implement individual research plans in Institutes and Departments, as well as to enable doctoral students to participate in seminars and professional traineeship. The specialised educational programme allows students to take part in various types of domestic and international courses, research internships and vocational training.

Doctoral Students Council of the University of Life Sciences in Lublin

The Doctoral Students' Self-Government unites all PhD students of the University of Life Sciences in Lublin and is an integral part of the academic community.
