Workshops in professional scientific communication
Research is not possible without communication. Writing a complex thesis, research reports, preparing manuscripts to be submitted to peer-reviewed international research journals, designing posters and oral contributions with or without visual support for presentations in front of international experts or make an active contribution to an ongoing research discussion are key generic skills of any successful researcher.
Doctoral researchers at RUB are fully integrated into the complex process of scientific communication - from the process of raising the necessary support for the research projects (grants, proposals) to the publication of research papers and the communication of research results to researchers from their own as well as other disciplines. To support their communication skills, RUB Research School offers high-level training courses in scientific communication. They support the professional as well as personal development of doctoral researchers, encourage them to realize their potentials and support the engagement, influence and impact of their research knowledge for a successful integration in the scientific community. According to the individual needs and interests they can choose between three kinds of generic skills courses:
- Scientific Writing
- Scientific Presentation
- Professional (Scientific) Communication
The language of the workshops is - depending on the contents - English or German.
The workshops in scientific communication are acknowleged for the doctoral training programme of the RUB Research School Certificate. The CPs you can gain for each workshop are indicated in the course descriptions.
