For those who could not attend the Geo.X Career Day 2017.
The movie features the Geo.X Career Day 2017, focussing on the art of work-life-balance in scientific research.
Camera, Direction and Editing: Johanna Ickert and René Arnold
Idea and Concept:
Self- and time management, strategies for decision-making, defining goals, setting priorities, delegation and coordination techniques, dealing with stress, building time schedule on the day/week/month scale, control progress, creating balance in life. The participants will work on the development of their individual PhD and Career Development Plans.
General principles of scientific writing, writing for international journals, publications and proposals, specific English grammar. Participants will produce their own 4-page article on their project before the course, and improve it during the course.
Participants will be exposed to the basics of research funding, management, knowledge transfer, value creation, entrepreneurship, such that they can define their interests in their later career stages.
This is an activity-based workshop led by a theatre professional whose expertise is in helping the speaker effectively communicate the importance and relevance of their scientific work and the core message in their talk. Participants can strengthen the narrative, emotional tone, and the physicality of their talk in order todefine and support the speaker’s own dynamic style. The training focuses on the delivery of scientific presentations in a variety of contexts and audiences, with an emphasis also on intercultural aspects.
Role of dissemination and outreach in a competing scientific world, definition of communication objectives: how to address the scientific community, the concerned private sector, the public sector, the interested non-scientific public covering the choice of appropriate communication channels.
First, participants will understand that a successful grant application has to meet the economic and political intentions of the funding agency and what this means for the design of a proposal. In the second part the participants will experience how to work out a proposal as a consortium. They will be confronted with all the practical difficulties associated with proposal writing.
