The PhD Committee of the Debye Institute (DAC) represents and attends the interests of the PhD candidates and postdocs working within the Debye Institute.
Each research group is represented by at least one PhD candidate. The DAC’s main goal is to unite the six research groups by organising activities and events such as the biannual Do! Days, the Debye Sports Day, and the social programme during the Spring School. DAC members regularly meet with the Debye board to discuss issues that concern PhD candidates within the institute.

The committee is run by a rotating group of PhDs dedicated to providing a dynamic and friendly environment for the PhD community. It organises monthly events to promote community-building and interdisciplinary dialogue. Examples of such events are the PhDrinks – an informal community-building event – and the PhDebates – a discussion platform for topics ranging from cutting-edge research to life as a PhD.
