Taking the next step in your career requires more than just technical knowledge. We offer on-site courses that are ideally suited to complement research expertise at your institution. They can of course also be customized to meet your special requirements.

Intended for PhD students at the beginning of their career, this comprehensive course covers (almost) everything from group dynamics, communication and presentation skills, project and time management. Intensive 3 days course.

HIGHER EDUCATION

Fast forward for your teaching qualities: didactics and content management, evaluation and feedback, how learning works, understanding and addressing conflicts, presentation skills. 3 days course for beginners and advanced lecturers.

STAGE FRIGHT

Do you have enough charisma? Scientists with extensive theater experience will train your impact on stage: interpret and use body language, identify your strengths – be convincing in discussions! 2 days course on a real stage.
