The Stichting (Foundation) Bob Wessels Insolvency Law Collection (secretariat: Professor Reinout Vriesendorp Leiden University Law School, Steenschuur 25, 2311 ES Leiden, The Netherlands), recently announced its first PhD Workshop on European/International Insolvency Law. The Foundaton invites PhD students from Europe and beyond to present their ideas, but also the challenges and questions they are confronted with in a two day workshop held at Leiden University in Leiden, Netherlands, starting 28 February 2019. Goals of the PhD Workshop are twofold. First, it would provide PhD students from all over Europe and the world with a chance to connect with peers who are at the very same stage of their legal or academic career. They can meet, exchange experiences and create a
network. Second, the workshop would allow each participant to present, test and discuss their (developing) ideas in front of fellow colleagues as well
as experienced professors in order to strengthen their research findings and skills.
Setting of the PhD Workshop: the workshop is sponsored by the Stichting Bob Wessels Insolvency Law Collection which is supporting the international and European insolvency law section in the Law school library of Leiden University. Therefore, the workshop will take place at Leiden University annually in
the last week of February/first week of March. The Stichting will provide one night accommodation in Leiden and (if not otherwise reimbursed) a maximum of 50% of the travel expenses up to EUR 250,-. Participation in the workshop is limited to invited PhD students. Applications for invitations must be submitted by December 31, 2018 to Prof. Stephan Madaus (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Responsibility for the review of applications and the workshop itself is with the Board of the Stichting: Prof. Matthias Haentjens; Prof. Eric Dirix Belgium), Prof. Stephan Madaus (Germany), Dr. Paul Omar (England) and Prof. Reinout Vriesendorp. Prof. em. Bob Wessels will be involved as a patron.
Prize: the participants to the PhD Workshop may compete for a prize (a choice from the Collection which was not selected or made available by the Library and an amount of EUR 500,-) as a recognition of the most original presentation.
