PromooD, in association with A+BE PhD council organized the yearly social event “BBQ” on 26th June, 2015. More than 100 people joined the event in PSOR, Faculteitscafe CiTG. This year the BBQ menu was expanded to include Regular, Halal and Vegetarian. Photos of the event were posted on Facebook, and can be accessed by clicking here. Sunny weather was an added benefit to the event. The event would not have a success without the effort of involved people. Special thanks goes out to PromooD members (Babak and Sasha) and A+BE PhD council member (Alejandro).
PromooD organized their first social event of 2015 called “Pub-Quiz.” Since the idea was to organize something unique that would attract PhD researchers out of their research labs/offices, Pub-Quiz served the purpose. The event was organized in SnookerCafe, Delft. Event was attended by approximately 80 people. The winners of Pub-Quiz were team “Novam 2”, comprising of Nadine Magura, Nan Zhong and Zelijka Madzarevic. Each of them received gift vouchers from V&D sponsored by PromooD, and also 1-hour of free-pool/snooker and drinks sponsored by SnookerCafe. Apart from Pub-Quiz, attendees also enjoyed “Free” drinks, snacks, pool, snooker and dart. Photos of event can be found on PromooD’s Facebook page here.
