What is MindMint?
MindMint provides an online platform to early-career researchers at the University of Groningen for showcasing their state-of-the-art research and for sharing their experiences as up-and-coming scientists.
The website also provides information about science communication in more general terms, other SciComm initiatives, and an overview of upcoming events in- and around Groningen about digestible and engaging content-creation!
All in all, MindMint is here to assist YOU in bringing your story to life!
Are you interested in sharing 1) science stories, 2) your current PhD research, or 3) what it's like to be a PhD? We would love to help you with that - we are always looking for new content creators! If you are interested in contributing: please join our Slack channel and introduce yourself! Or if you have any other questions you can always write to us in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
