Two EuroTech Universities Alliance Postdoc Workshops are scheduled for summer/ autumn 2016:
2nd EuroTech Universities Postdoc Workshop "Soft Skills for Global Leaders", Munich,
This three-day workshop is aimed at preparing postdocs for their next career step and complementing their ample repertoire of technical qualifications with essential soft skills. As such, it will provide an intensive, highly interactive and fun crash course in the soft skills underlying professional success, in both academic and non-academic careers. At the same time, the workshop provides a great opportunity to network and establish collaborations among the participants.
The workshop will cover leadership topics ranging from Presenting Science, Networking, Diversity and Change Management, Cross-Cultural Competence and Communication as well as Career Planning.
More information will be made available soon. For further information, please contact Dr. Christoph Meier.
1st EuroTech Universities Postdoc Workshop on EU Research Policy & Funding, Brussels, 29-30/9/2016:
Building on the experience of the EuroTech Universities Brussels Office in organising Horizon2020 preparatory workshops and EU Master Classes, the EuroTech Universities Postdoc Workshop on the EU research policy and funding landscape for the first time exclusively addresses Postdocs. In a first instance, the workshop is open to Postdocs from the EuroTech Universities Focus Areas Health & Bio Engineering and Data Science & Engineering. The workshops aims to increase the awareness of EU instruments for postdoctoral career development and to enhance the potential for collaboration within the Alliance on the basis of EU funding opportunities.
The workshop will provide an introduction to the EU policy landscape in relation to funding for research and innovation as well as opportunities offered by the EuroTech Universities Alliance. Experts from across the Alliance will cover EU Funding for Excellent Science, e.g. opportunities under the European Research Council Starting Grants; Marie Sklodowska-Curie and Future and Emerging Technologies, as well as the mechanics of EU collaborative research with a special emphasis on the fields of data and health.
