We want to be more than just a place to study. We want to provide
a platform for scientific discussions and synergies!
The 1st International ICBAS Webinar Series is a selection of web talks with invited speakers from universities and research centers around the world.
Through these talks, we aim to promote knowledge transfer and to stimulate our students and researchers to meet and exchange ideas with leading international gests speakers from different backgrounds and scientific areas. This will foster an interdisciplinary and collaborative environment.
These weekly webinars (every Wednesday at 5pm (GMT) are open to everyone in the academic community.
