# Workshop First-Year students

As in previous years, the reporting of First-Year students of our PhD School has taken place in the form of a “workshop”. Each First-Year student gives a short talk introducing the topic of his/her thesis, and expressing the main motivations why he/she finds that particular topic interesting and worthwhile.

Please note that the purpose is not to discuss technical details, but to give an overview of the topic of your work. We regard this event as an important opportunity for all the students and professors of our School to meet and know each other, and share interests and scientific discussion.
