HEROES: Helping Each other with Research On Empirical Subjects

HEROES is a group of empirical minded PhD students. HEROES stands for Helping Each other with Research On Empirical Subjects. The assumption behind HEROES is that we are all in the same boat - we will arrive quicker at the beach by paddling together.

Every other week we either discuss an article, present our own research, listen to invited speakers and/or help each other with doing research.
