[Trier University] 4th transdisciplinary PhD Conference (December 8-9, 2022 | online)

Written by

The 4th transdisciplinary PhD Conference “Third Mission (im)possible?! Options for action for young scientists“ is organised by the University Group “DocColloq“ at Trier University.

Science, society, and politics are deeply intertwined – this close connection has become evident not least during the corona pandemic. Nevertheless, a large number of people are sometimes skeptical or undecided about science, its working methods, financing or social relevance (e.g., Wissenschaftsbarometer 2021). Obviously, research institutions can and must ensure more transparency and openness in this regard, i.e., involve society, present research credibly, and communicate it in an understandable way. These tasks fall within the Third Mission area of activity, the third major task alongside research and teaching.

[TU Freiberg] Future Workshop KlinGas – (August / September 2022 | online)

Written by

Your expertise is needed! Have you wanted to take action against climate change for a long time? Then get involved!

What does “Future Workshop KlinGas – Climate Neutral Natural Gas Substitution” mean?

Young scientists from the three regionally networked “coal states” Brandenburg, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt are invited to contribute their expertise to this transdisciplinary discussion process. In order to do so, doctoral students and postdocs from many disciplines, including engineering, material sciences, natural sciences, geosciences, economics as well as social sciences, political sciences, law, computer science, mathematics and journalism are required.

In a structured discussion process, KlinGas focuses primarily on the natural gas sector and deal with the question exemplarily for Germany and Europe:

  • How can the entire natural gas demand of the German states of Brandenburg, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt be substituted in a climate-neutral and environmentally friendly way within a very short time (1-2 years)?
  • What is required for this and what specific steps must be taken to achieve this?

Written by

Das Referat 3.2 – Personalentwicklung bietet diesen Kurs für die Zielgruppe der Promovierenden an.

Sie haben sich nach Ihrem Studium für eine wissenschaftliche Karriere entschieden? Eine Promotion kann ganz schön herausfordernd sein. Gar nicht so leicht, dabei einen kühlen Kopf zu bewahren.
Wenn neben der Promotion noch weitere Faktoren hinzukommen, die den Stress erhöhen, kann sich das auf Ihre Leistungsfähigkeit auswirken und auch den Erfolg Ihrer Promotion beeinflussen. Zu den Faktoren, die den Druck in der Promotionsphase erhöhen, zählen bspw. Leistungsdruck in der Forschung und beim Publizieren, Zeit- und Termindruck, berufliche Unsicherheit oder familiäre Verpflichtungen. Wie Sie es dennoch schaffen können, den Anforderungen Ihrer Promotionszeit gerecht zu werden und trotzdem in Balance zu bleiben?
In diesem 5-teiligen Online-Seminar erfahren die Teilnehmenden, wie es gut gelingen kann, mit belastenden und nervenaufreibenden Situationen gelassener, sicherer und gesünder umzugehen.
