Hi All,

We are an international group of PhD students interested in questions surrounding basic income. And we are very happy to announce a new initiative: the UBI PhD Network. Our goal is to connect young researchers working on UBI (and closely related topics) internationally. We aim to provide a platform for people to meet, have exchanges with like-minded researchers, and discuss their work. 

The network is not bound to any academic institution and is run by PhD students for PhD students. However, we are supported by BIEN and plan to become a proper BIEN affiliate once our network is fully established. There will be a meeting at the next BIEN congress in Bath at the end of August for PhD students to get more information and discuss how to move this project forward. For now, we are launching an email list so we can communicate with each other. If you wish to join, you can fill out the application through this link: https://forms.gle/hg7TrKGmuEF7WSmU8. Please note, this email list is for internal purposes only and will not be shared with other organisations.

Please share this email or the link in your networks and forward it to other people you know who are doing a PhD on UBI. Let’s bring everyone together!

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at ubiphdnetwork@gmail.com
