NEW in 2021: FIRESIDE CHATS - next event: 18 May

The Digital Enlightenment Forum would like to invite you to an online ‘Fireside Chat’

What is this about?

A Fireside Chat is an online informal chat of 1 -1.5 hours. Participants are 6-10 young, promising PhD or masters’ level students/researchers or young professionals and a senior person from the world of policy, politics, industry or academia.

The senior person as a host will kick-off on a theme, followed by an open discussion. You will also exchange on the professional life experiences of the host. And get to know some new people!
