Seminar Series

The PFTC seminar series is aimed at all PFTC alumni, and anyone else interested. This is a place where (former) PFTC students can share about their current work and at the same time stay connected to our ever growing network.

We aim to meet on the first Thursday of the month via zoom. Each seminar takes approx. 45 minutes, leaving 15 minutes for questions. If you are interested in giving a seminar, or would like to join one of our seminars, please get in contact using the contact form.
