15:30 Informal Chat Groups / Supervisor Gathering

During this session, IGGI students are invited to meet in informal chat groups. The groups' topic labels can be seen as incentive for conversation; but simply using this time for "catching up" with fellow IGGIs is the true plan here. In parallel, we run a Supervisor Gathering dedicated to building a tighter community and support network among those who supervise IGGI PhD students.
