Talking to the media: An introduction to science communication 06 December 2019 in Hamburg

Date: 06 December 2019 Hamburg

Time: 09:00 – 16:30

Location: Tutech Innovation GmbH, Harburger Schloßstraße 6-12, 21079 Hamburg

If you’ve made an important research breakthrough, other people should know about it. Of course your peers are important, but what about the wider world? The terms of your research funding may also require you to disseminate your results publicly. This workshop looks at how journalists work and at how to tell your story succinctly and clearly so that a non-specialist audience will understand you. It also covers press release writing, dealing with controversial issues and devising a media strategy and incorporates several hands-on practice sessions.
The workshop is designed for early-stage researchers, e.g. PhD candidates or postdocs; research project partners who are responsible for disseminating results.

The language of presentations will be English.

ReMaT – Research management training for early-stage researchers

A ReMaT workshop – Research management training for early-stage researchers – will take place in Hamburg on 18th and 19th November 2019. The workshop is designed for early-stage researchers in engineering and natural sciences, particularly PhD candidates from the 2nd year onwards. The idea of European networking is very much embedded in the concept, and we encourage participation from many different countries at the workshop.

ReMaT is an interactive, intensive workshop providing an introduction to research management. It involves two international trainers and is held in English. The modules of the workshop cover exploitation of knowledge and entrepreneurship, acquisition of grants, intellectual property rights and the management of interdisciplinary projects. They are delivered in such a way that it challenges participants to consider different perspectives on how they might use their PhD education in a variety of career paths, and convince others to hire them.

How to develop a strategic plan for funding your research (12 February 2019)

Tutech Innovation GmbH will offer a How to develop a strategic plan for funding your research – workshop that will take place on * 12 February 2019 * in Hamburg at the premises of Tutech.

The continuity of research funding often makes or breaks a research career at the postdoctoral stage. As institutional core funding diminishes and external funding becomes more and more competitive, how do you build your resources systematically and mitigate the risk of gaps in funding?
This workshop explores the concept of strategy in the research context. Having a clear idea of your research direction facilitates aligning even small projects to larger goals, making individual proposals more compelling. It will also help to avoid the trap of letting funding dictate your research focus which leads to a fragmented track record. The goal of the workshop is to provide guidance on how to approach the development of a strategic funding plan in the individual research setting. Participants will learn how to apply key elements of strategy to develop their research agenda, identify a portfolio of funding opportunities to be pursued in the coming years and manage the grant life cycle systematically to build the resources and capabilities necessary to deliver long-term sustainable research.

Management Akademie: Storytelling für die Wissenschaft in Weimar

“In einer demokratischen Gesellschaft ist eine bürgerorientierte Wissenschaftskommunikation (…) keine Zumutung. Eher schon wird durch sie jenes räsonierende Publikum realisiert, in dem Kant überhaupt das Medium der Aufklärung sah.” (S. 24, “Fundiert Forschen”, Springer Verlag, Wiesbaden, 2017)

Wissenschaftskommunikation ist das Zauberwort: wissenschaftliche Inhalte sollen nicht nur innerhalb eines Fachbereiches geteilt, sondern auch sachlich, interdisziplinär und offen reflektiert werden. Die Öffentlichkeit hat ein verstärktes Interesse an den Ergebnissen wissenschaftlicher Arbeit. Es steigt die Nachfrage nach allgemein verständlichen Inhalten. Wissenschaftler und Forscherinnen können sich nicht mehr nur auf ihre akademischen Leistungen verlassen. Um ihre Expertise Kooperationspartnern, Vorgesetzten, Geldgebern, potentiellen Kunden, Geschäftspartnern oder auch Investoren verständlich, klar und ansprechend zu präsentieren, benötigen sie mehr als ihre Fachkompetenz. Es geht um die richtige Formulierungen und die passende Visualisierung. Genau diese Kompetenz können Sie in diesem Workshop erlernen.

Zielgruppe: Dieser Workshop eignet sich für Forscherinnen und Wissenschaftler sowohl aus der universitären wie der industriellen Forschung und Entwicklung. Ein Hochschulabschluss wird vorausgesetzt.

Inhalte: Der Workshop umfasst drei wesentliche Elemente:

1. Erkenntnisse aus dem logischen Denken: Wie denke ich – wie denkt mein Publikum?
Die Teilnehmenden lernen – anhand ihrer eigenen Forschungsthemen – Inhalt so zu strukturieren, dass fachfremde Leser und Zuhörer die Informationen leichter nachvollziehen können. Die Struktur basiert auf Forschungsergebnissen aus der Logik und dem Storytelling.

2. Analyse der Zielgruppen: Mit wem spreche ich eigentlich?
Wir erarbeiten und analysieren gemeinsam verschiedene Zielgruppen-Typen nach Methoden aus dem Marketing. Die Teilnehmenden üben dann die Vermittlung ihrer Inhalten für verschiedene Zielgruppen – als Präsentation, Aufsatz oder Poster.

3. Die Storyline für wissenschaftliche Helden-Geschichten
Wie begeistere ich mein Publikum, damit es mir überhaupt (weiter) zuhört? Genau hier sind die Erkenntnisse und Methoden des Storytelling nützlich. Wenn ein Thema in einem besonders strukturierten Zusammenhang – einer Storyline – kommuniziert wird, bleibt das Publikum interessiert. Die Teilnehmenden entwickeln eine Storyline für ihr aktuelles Forschungsthema.

Wann? Freitag, den 27.07.2018 ab 10:00 Uhr bis Samstag, den 28.07.2018 um 17:00 Uhr

Wo? Management Akademie Weimar (Villa Ingrid), Gutenbergstraße 1, 99423 Weimar

Teilnahmegebühr: 599,- EUR (netto; inkl. MwSt.: 712,81 EUR) bei Anmeldung bis 30.04.2018. Nach Ablauf der Early-Bird-Konditionen gilt der Normaltarif von 699,- EUR netto.

Hamburg International Conference of Logistics (HICL 2018) – Ph.D. seminar (12.09.2018)

We would like to inform you that the Hamburg International Conference of Logistics (HICL 2018) is offering a Ph.D. seminar on the 12. Sep 2018 for doctoral candidates.

The seminar is curated by Prof. Dr. Kai Hoberg (Supply Chain and Operations Strategy, Kühne Logistics University) in workshop form aiming to promote an understanding of new research opportunities in logistics and supply chain management that arise due to digitalization. These opportunities relate, for example, to additive manufacturing, IoT, analytics and new business models driven by digital technology. The proposed methodologies focus on modeling and empirical research. The workshop is conducted under the guidance of experienced researchers. The get-together is also meant as a networking opportunity and a reduced-rate access to the conference for those young researchers that are not yet ready to submit a full paper.

Currently, there are only 4 seats left – guest vouchers for full conference participation are handed out to all participants at the Ph. D. seminar day.
