What is the MCN Symposium?
The Symposium is an annual gathering of graduate researchers and supervisors engaged with the Melbourne CNRS Network. The event will provide a forum for both parties to exchange experiences and ideas in their individual research areas. The program includes round table discussions, workshops and networking activities. Guests are welcome.
This is an opportunity for ongoing MCN joint PhD candidates, Australian and French project supervisors and external guests to network and to socialise.
