Intercultural Communication – Lunch Meeting

Thursday, 3rd of December 2015 – 12:30 - 13:30 – Ravelijn, RA 2334

Are you an international PhD working with Dutch people or are you a Dutch PhD working with internationals? Maybe you sometimes wonder if you really understand each other? How do you tell if your communication with them is effective? And what does it say about how you are used to communicate? During this lunch meeting we will get a short introduction of the influence of culture on our behavior and communication. As always we’ll provide you with a free lunch!

On Wednesday 27th January, P-NUT organizes the General Members Meeting. With P-NUT being a member-driven organization, this is your opportunity to have your say. Our annual report over 2015 will be presented, and plans for 2016 will be discussed.

A new President, Secretary, and Treasurer will be elected. Following our statutes, the Board of P-NUT will announce one candidate for each position, but every person that is supported by enough members can become a candidate for one of those positions. Should you be interested to run for one of the open positions, please contact Sarah Janus ( for more information.

Join us and have your say!
