HBP Tea & Slides is a virtual coffee break format featuring talks by early career researchers from the HBP, as they present their work and make themselves visible to others within, as well as outside the project. To embrace the diverse nature of the HBP, in each session, the organisers strive to invite speakers from two distinct areas, covering the broad spectrum of research disciplines contained in the project. Participants can watch and learn about fellow students’ projects and meet potential future collaborators. Occasionally, HBP Tea & Slides features special sessions on non-scientific topics concerning different aspects of academia relevant to early career researchers. HBP Tea & Slides is free and open for anyone to attend.
