BEHAVE Rendez-vous

The BEHAVE lab hosts biweekly regular group meetings for all lab members, including guests, invited speakers and Ph.D. and Master students. They typically take place on Tuesdays from 11AM to 1PM at the Department of Social and Political Sciences, Via Conservatorio, Passione building, seminar room (2nd floor), if not otherwise indicated.

The meetings revolve around everything that is relevant to research or training of the group, such as (but not limited to):

    • Discussion of working papers to be submitted to journals (which should ideally be previously shared)
    • Confidential discussion of review reports received on manuscripts submitted to journals, including ideas and suggestions for the response
    • Mock presentations of members’ conference talks (or Ph.D. defence)
    • Discussion of new (even crazy) ideas and calls for collaboration
    • Presentation of research published by non-members relevant to the group (e.g., a recently published article or book)
    • Discussing ideas for grant applications
    • Advanced training: quick hands-on tutorials on new tools/techniques by group members  (e.g., “let me show you how to make the best graphs with ggplot2”).

The goals of these meetings are:

    • Fostering group cohesion and solidarity
    • Stimulate new projects
    • Ensuring that every member can be at the frontier of research
    • Strengthening the quality of training
