Welcome to PubhD Dublin!

About Us

Can you present your research in a pub?

PubhD is a monthly, free event that brings together PhD students from every Waterford college across a range of disciplines to share their work in ten-minute presentations, with an additional 20 minutes for friendly questions and answers. Masters, undergraduates and general public usually join too because it’s good fun. It was established by two non-academics working in Nottingham during 2014, since then its network has expanded to over 20 cities, across five different countries. It is a fantastic opportunity to share your research with a non-specialist audience, to test new ideas ahead of a conference, and to meet students from the other universities. So what do you need to present your research?
