Why register on PEFnet?

Why participate in PEFnet? For me, it is a great opportunity to present my ideas for the first time, in the home environment of our faculty. Last year I presented an outline of my topic at PEFnet and got not only great feedback but also encouragement to continue, present my work abroad and voilà – eventually submit the paper to a professional journal. So I take PEFnet as a first important step towards my PhD. It is an opportunity you should definitely not miss!
