This and next week, our training on RRI (responsible research and innovation) is underway, touching upon the importance of research contributing to solving societies’ big challenges. The training is lead by Sciencebirds.
Our training on Open Science will be held online this upcoming Friday! Our training will be Jochen Apel from the Heidelberg university library. Looking forward to it!
We’re making progress in our project, and next Tuesday, 25th of January 2022, we will be holding our midterm project check with REA’s project officer. A welcome occasion for all our fellows to present their first steps at their projects, and for our consortium to gather and see where and how to improve our work. We look forward to this!
Our fellows have been recruited! Our kick-off meeting to start the training and research work will take place online in November 2021, in several installments. We look forward to meeting you all!
Quo vadis, PhD student ? Our first training session in the first week of October prepared our fellows to tackle the non-scientific aspects of a PhD project. Under the lead of sciencebirds, we could establish ways to network, ask (and answer) questions such as soft skills training, employers’ expectations, career development plans etc. etc. And it was also a nice occasion to meet among each others (at least virtually, and at least one half of the group).
All (but one) fellows have begun their work! Meet Davide, Yusuf, Shuzhe, Riccardo, Swayangdipat and Laurin! We’ll update the website with their photos and background as soon as everybody has well settled into their new groups, working environments, and has taken the first steps as PhD student! Welcome!
