PhD Round Tables

Objectives of the PhD Round Table

  • Enhancing the getting to know other people doing research in the field of System Dynamics and related disciplines in order to enhance the formation of informal peer groups
  • Providing a platform for putting doctoral research work on the test and benefiting from the scholarly exchange between junior, advanced and senior researchers
  • Sharing personal experiences related to System Dynamics and other systemic approaches by giving/receiving valuable feedback and recommendations regarding the presented research work
  • Learning about the application of System Dynamics in different sectors of the industry
