GIANT Orientation Day – 15 April 2019


The GIANT Junior Ambassadors team launches a new event dedicated to incoming junior researchers in 2019:
the GIANT Orientation Day


The first edition of the GIANT Orientation Day will take place on 15 April 2019, in multiple venues on the GIANT campus.

Why should you attend?

The GIANT Orientation Day is a federative event intended for students from all institutes and companies on campus to meet and network. It is also the opportunity to know more about what kind of research and activities happen in local labs and companies.
