  • Specialized lecture for BEAM: Supramolecular chemistry

    Event Date: 10.10.2022 – 04.02.2023:

    Supramolecular chemistry, also known as “chemistry beyond the molecule”, deals with the study of molecular recognition and high-order assemblies formed by noncovalent interactions. The molecules that comprise the supermolecule interact with each other via weak interactions such as hydrogen-bonding, halogen-bonding, hydrophobic interactions, and coordination to form new entities with novel properties and functions that cannot be deduced by a simple summation of the properties of the individual molecules. This course is intended to introduce you to the fast-growing field of supramolecular chemistry and to understand the different types of non-covalent interactions that can lead to supramolecules.
  • Workshop: project management for PhD students

    Event Date: 25.08.2022 – 26.08.2022:

The techniques covered will be practiced on the participants’ individual doctoral cases. As a result, they create a plan for their (remaining) doctoral time and learn how to utilize it. Instead of presenting golden rules, the advantages and disadvantages of different project management procedures will be explained. Participants are encouraged to contribute their own preferences and experiences and to vary the techniques presented.

    “Integral to voice and body training is the central idea that physical and vocal dynamics are connected to the speaker’s motivation and to the importance of the information being communicated. The trainer has a professional theatre background, which is a unique benefit for the participants to help identify the verbal challenges of each speaker, giving attention to breath, articulation, intonation, volume, modulation and tempo. The Training is given to improve non-verbal aspects such as gesture, positioning, distance, eye contact and relationship with media. The trainer input will provide the opportunity to gain new insights in effective communication and learn how to present yourself more effectively and to make the best impression and strongest impact. Participants monitor their improvement and implement feedback through active role-play exercises in which they present themselves.”

  • Workshop: Culture at work

    Event Date: 12.05.2022:

    As a scientist, we often work in a cross-cultural setting. Our research groups are international, we collaborate around the globe, and most of us will spend part, -or even all- of our career abroad. We can and should feel privileged to work in such a diverse and intercultural work environment. But these cultural and -of course- also individual differences can lead to all manners of misunderstandings. These misunderstandings can lead to a broad variety of undesired consequences, such as failed collaborations, frustrations, feelings of hurt, anxiety and anger, culture shock and missed opportunities for knowledge transfer. Cultural awareness is the first step in sidestepping these undesired consequences. During this course you will improve your cross-cultural understanding, so you can tap into the full potential of your intercultural teams.

Their purpose is to highlight research results, visualize them and stimulate discussion. To draw your audience in, you need a crystal-clear message, a text format optimized for best legibility, well-chosen graphics and above all, a convincing layout for a printed or digital format. Basic rules of graphic design help you to arrange your research visually well-ordered and compelling.

    “Time can not be bought, stored or stopped. Every second that passes is gone forever. In this respect it should be seen as the most valuable of all resources and the only way to maximize its potential is to use it well. What “well” means in this context is a highly individual thing. You will leave the training with many insights on your own patterns and a toolset to increase effectivity and efficiency. You will have a chance to clarify and prioritise your values and goals and plan tasks and projects that align with your goals. You will identify your particular time wasters and adopt strategies for eliminating them from your work pattern. You will find out about your high energy periods and how to focus your attention. As the planning of scientific research projects becomes more and more crucial, one workshop introduces this topic.”
