What makes a great research supervisor? This summer school course appeals to anyone who is currently involved in supervising student research or projects at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level, or who wants to begin supervising student research or projects. Using a range of interactive approaches, we will explore good supervision practice, troubleshoot the challenges for effective supervision, and collaborate to produce a resource for you to take back to your organisations to share and implement effective supervision in practice.
Within the ERASMUS+ Knowledge Alliance, TACIT project – https://www.tacitproject.org) we are organising a PhD Summer School on June 11-15, 2018 at RWTH Aachen University in Germany. The summer school focuses on Innovation and Entrepreneurship Methods and will be a good mix of lectures, workshops and social activities.
The summer school is both for PhD and Master students, and will effectively give the participants a hands-on experience of a diversity of methods, that can provide them with new approaches to innovation and entrepreneurship.
Application deadline is May 1st! You need to include your CV and a short application describing your research interest, and why this summer school would be interesting for you to participate in.
A ReMaT workshop – Research management training for early-stage researchers – will take place in Hamburg on 16th and 17th April 2018. 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. 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.
