The PhUSE European Annual Conference 2017 will incorporate a University Day, where undergraduates, post graduates and educators will be invited to attend on the Wednesday of the conference, and to learn about the career options available within the industry.

The purpose of the University Day, continuing in the spirit of PhUSE, will be to engage in a dialogue between Industry and Academia. Industry will provide the students an opportunity to explore careers in this sector and will provide some guidance to the educators on our needs as employers, with the below objectives:
