The first AfterLab leisure meeting took place on the 22nd of June of the present year, and was held by INSA-UB in close collaboration with PhD Programme of Food, Nutrition and Gastronomy. Aimed at encouraging healthy interactions between PhD students from the comunity of research in food science, nutrition and gastronomy, the present event consisted of a speech from an invited speaker followed by some leisure time in which food and drinks were freely offered. Oriol Güell, a well-known psycologist and trainer, was invited to the event to perform an incredibly successful and positive speech to the assistants. He talked about time management during the PhD, an always difficult yet interesting topic for PhD students. He displayed a wide range of elucidating and interactive techniques in order to achieve a permanent attention from the assistants.
The event took place at "Sala de les Voltes" from Food and Nutrition Torribera Campus and had an approximate duration of 3.5 hours. After the speech, the leisure time took place outdoors, at the same Campus. So good as it looks, you should keep yourself updated and avert missing the next one!
