2015 was a fantastic year for the Erasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Humanities (EGS3H). Interest and participation in our courses rose sharply and came from all disciplines contributing to our school. We were happy to welcome three acclaimed EUR institutes to our expanding graduate community.

How do you achieve a work-life balance when your work as an academic is never finished? In this two hour workshop, PhD candidate Anne Annink will go beyond time management and discuss the latest scientific insights on mechanisms underlying work-life balance.
