Short description: The aim is to provide doctoral students with tools for their specific environment characterized by a large variety of tasks, at times very high workload, the need to distinguish between the urgent and the important and to organize and motivate themselves. The focus will be on self-management, time management and project management. With an introduction to project planning, the participants receive a structuring aid for their doctoral thesis and other scientific projects. Participants quickly learn to apply new approaches and techniques to test their effectiveness. The tools have proven to make the participants’ personal approach to work more effective – both during training and later in the professional environment.

Based on participants’ feedback from the last two years, the course was slightly restructured to focus more on the time and project management tools. For more details, please see the attachment.

We particularly recommend the course for PhDs in their first and second year, but all are welcome.

Course fee: This course is 230 € for the entire course (please get the ok from your coordinator first).
