As the PhD Committee we want to fully represent NMS PhD Students. We organize the PhD Student's Annual Retreat and alsoaim to promote the interaction between professors, investigators, post-docs, students, and all employees of the NMS community, to enhance our team spirit.

We also make constant efforts to build bridges between the research institutes in the Lisbon area to promote interaction, discussion and exchange of knowledge and shared experiences.

General Objectives and Plans

To raise funds for the PhD Student's Annual Retreat, the PhD Committee organizes and coordinates several activities all year round, like the Beer & Food hour after the Casual Friday with Science Seminars, the Quizzes, and the Magusto, Christmas, Carnival, and Santos Populares parties!

The PhD Committee has also a strong sense of community and social action, collaborating with Junta de Freguesia de Arroios in several charity campaigns.

Currently, our PhD Committee is composed of 5 members, from different PhD years and different research areas. Facing the current pandemic situation, we intend to promotie and organize virtual meetings that nurture research discussion and networking.
