PhD Talent Pool Flanders, the launch

The 5 Flemish universities are excited to announce the official launch of the PhD Talent Pool Flanders, a new recruitment platform designed to better and faster align the supply and demand for PhD talent.

The launch of this career board on Thursday 24 June (09:00 hrs-12:00 hrs) is a major step towards our objective to smoothen the transition of skilled PhD degree holders to the labour market, and support employers in their search for the best employees.
