On Friday, October 27th, 2017 the CLHC will host its fourth forensic PhD symposium as part of our annual program.
This one day event is organized to build an active network of PhD students who are fully or partly performing their research in the forensic domain. Forensic science as an applied science is by definition very broad encompassing many scientific expertise areas including chemical, physical, digital, mathematical, biological and life sciences. Exciting new ideas and projects often emerge at the borders of these areas, hence we feel it is very important that you as PhD students are actively involved in the CLHC and that you aware of the overall program and the work of many of your peers. The symposium will offer an excellent opportunity to present your work to a broader audience of PhD colleagues, Forensic Science master students, UvA scientists, forensic experts from the NFI and forensic practitioners and professionals working in the Dutch criminal justice system. We will also invite scientists and PhD students that work on forensic science topics on other universities and institutes to build the forensic science network in the Netherlands and abroad. We expect over 100 participants and we will send out an official invitation to our CLHC network after the summer holiday.
