For many young scientists writing is the most difficult part of research work. Poor structure, breakneck formulations and unclear argumentation lead to texts which are not too user friendly. However, for the success of academics it is essential that the content is successfully conveyed to the relevant target groups – from the subject community to the wider public.
The methods and instruments of scientific writing can be learnt. With a few select mechanisms for structuring and techniques for building arguments, it becomes possible to articulate even complex data clearly and comprehensibly. Coherently built up and convincingly formulated, even academic texts can be an exciting read!
Scientists make a lot of mistakes as soon as they start to apply outside science. This workshop will help you to write a convincing application and to be successful in the job interview.
Debating equally enables women and men to discuss gender-matters. By means of explaining the advantages and disadvantages of a topic, a high analytical depth is achieved in argumentation, which helps participants to reflect their own way of thinking and to voice their opinions in daily life.
- Finding sound arguments as well as checking their relevance
- Building arguments in a coherent and convincing manner
- Being able to refute solid arguments
- Presenting oneself in a self-confident manner, even if the audience is a discerning one
- Handling interruptions and fault-finding questions in a confident manner

Why, what, how? – Knowledge transfer and startups at MLU
By Andreas Lauenroth, MLU-Gründerservice
Which idea is a good idea? What is a proper business model? How to deal with intellectual property? Where to apply for funding?
Those and other questions should be answered by scientists interested in technology transfer – but not just on their own. Martin Luther University’s transfer and entrepreneurship office provides information, training and services to scientists, covering all aspects of research valorisation and technology transfer, including validation, legal protection and marketing of technology and inventions, engaging in research relationships with industry, and the creation of business cases for entrepreneurial spin-out activities.

This seminar presents the basic principles and rules of good scientific practice. Fundamentals of scientific work, i.e. professional standards and documentation of results, are discussed. Further topics are handling of primary data (backup and storing) and scientific publications (authorship and scam journals). Also management of research data, following the FAIR principles is briefly introduced. Recent examples of scientific misconduct illustrate the official procedures at the institutions and possible consequences. The rules apply worldwide and for all subjects and every researcher at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics has to comply with these rules. ￼￼
