  • Meet leading International and Australian Entrepreneurship researchers
  • Share experiences and build a network with other doctoral students
  • Get first-hand experience of the review process
  • Gain tips and tricks for finishing, finding a job and surviving the process

The program provides the opportunity to pitch and receive feedback on your research and any specific challenges you face in an informal discussion setting. Hear from experts on developing and using theory and research design.  You will also get key insights into what happens after the PhD.

As a first-time participant and a new doctoral student just 6 months in, the conference has been extremely useful for me in terms of my own personal learning and in meeting new, liked-minded individuals. I would definitely encourage more of my friends to apply the conference in the future.
