The goal of the Social Committee is to: foster a sense of community amongst postdocs by organizing events such as socials, picnics, trips or activities. These events provide opportunities for social, professional and academic networking.

We have a social event every month (or we tried really hard to have one). Join our mailing list to not miss out our social events!
