OBJECTIVES

One pillar of a successful academic career is making good contacts. Communication in professional forums is often decisive for future career options. This workshop helps participants to get in touch with people in the right way. Three scenarios stand out: 1. informal situations (“socials”), 2. academic discussions (at conferences, talks, colloquia etc.), 3. establishing and maintaining contact with fellow academics, often via email.

After the workshop, participants will be able to strategically make contacts that advance their careers and to feel more comfortable in the social setting of their academic community. Most importantly, they will be able to set their own networking goals and to develop concrete strategies to achieve them.
