WARREDOC researchers Antonio Annis and Francisco Febronio Peña participated in the PhD Days (26-28 June), event organized by the Italian Hydraulic Group (Gruppo Italiano di Idraulica) and the Department of Environment, Land and Infrastructure Engineering of the Polytechnic University of Turin.
The event gathered more than 50 national and international young researchers enrolled in several Italian PhD programs to foster research collaborations and dialogue in the fields of water science.
The PhD days represent a valuable opportunity for those early in their careers to learn about other aspects of hydrology and hydraulics, listen to junior lecturers and practice their presentation skills during poster sessions or flash presentations.
