As a successful researcher it is important to develop your communication and interpersonal skills alongside your research profile. In particular, the ability to convey your skills through effective communication can be crucial for your career as a researcher. Furthermore, knowledge about “power” and “status games” can lead to a broader point of view and a larger set of negotiation and communication skills.

Through this training, participants will develop a precise idea of their own personal communication skills and abilities. They will be enabled to develop a more authentic way of presenting their scientific work, enabling them to promote the content and results of their presentations with much higher self-confidence.


Negotiation tools, interactive group work, elements of improvisation, feedback sessions, theoretical interactive inputs, argumentation/negotiation techniques, role play

Target group: female PhD students and postdocs
Maximum number of participants: 12
