ALL DISCIPLINES: eDOCation - Young researchers ("eDOCs") Further education for companies

What is eDOCation all about?
eDOCation is the first online platform where young scientists ("eDOCs") offer continuing education for companies. I launched the initiative together with my former doctoral colleague Tobias Hornig (now a data scientist at Siemens). The platform contributes to the transfer of knowledge from universities to business practice and to improving the financial situation and future prospects of doctoral students, postdocs and junior professors. Market research conducted by us has shown that our eDOCs could earn a high three-digit € amount for a two-hour research workshop in companies. At the same time, eDOCation offers companies and their employees the opportunity to benefit from state-of-the-art science in the sense of lifelong learning and to gain access to the country's brightest minds as mentors in the "war for talent". The company is currently being promoted by the Stifterverband as one of the "30 best ideas for the education, science and innovation system of tomorrow" as part of the WIRKUNG HOCH 100 initiative. More information about eDOCation is available at www.edocation.org and in the attached presentation.
 
You want to get to know us?
The eDOCation Powerbank regularly offers free and non-binding workshops that can support you in research & teaching as well as personal growth. The following events are planned for the semester break (including links to Eventbrite)

  • New Work Kits in Academia, 20.8.2021, 9:00 - 10:30
  • Spreading your research: How to become a Scientific Influencer, 2.9.2021, 9:00 - 10:30
  • Science with KNIME, 7.9.2021, 9:00 - 11:00

 
Would you like to give talks in companies and be one of our eDOCs?
Send us your application including the following documents

  • CV [or link to LinkedIn profile],
  • High resolution picture,
  • research topic/s,
  • training offer for companies (e.g. lectures, seminars, workshops),
  • declaration that we may use your data,

please send your application to edoc@edocation.org. More information, such as selection criteria or forms of continuing education, can be found here. You can view the profiles of our current eDOCs here.
 
How else can you support us?
If you find the idea of eDOCation exciting, we would be happy if you would personally recommend it to friends and acquaintances in academia and industry. You can also help us to expand our network and keep up to date with the latest news by following us on LinkedIn.

VARIOUS DISCIPLINES: Daimler and Benz Foundation -  Call for applications: “Resolving conflicts of goals with business games and simulations” (Ladenburger Kolleg)

Deadline: 01.09.2021

In the next few years, the Daimler and Benz Foundation will be funding the topic of "Resolving Conflicts of Objectives through Business Games and Simulations" in its Ladenburg Collegium format and will be providing an amount of up to 650,000 euros per year (maximum term three years) for a research association for this purpose. Independent research group leaders at universities and non-profit, non-university research institutions are eligible to apply.

In an interdisciplinary, interdisciplinary and, if necessary, also transnational research project, emerging and/or already existing areas of tension between economy and technology, environment and society with seemingly irresolvable conflicts of objectives are to be identified and contradictions made transparent. A profound understanding of the conflicting goals can then serve as a basis for technological as well as societal solution approaches. Methodologically, the proposed research projects should focus on business games or simulations, which also provide outsiders with a profound understanding of the problem and the effects of possible solutions.

If you would like to submit a proposal, please send a short e-mail to Dr. Günther R. Mittler at guenther.mittler@zuv.uni-heidelberg.de.

ALL DISCIPLINES: eDOCation - Young researchers ("eDOCs") Further education for companies

What is eDOCation all about?
eDOCation is the first online platform where young scientists ("eDOCs") offer continuing education for companies. I launched the initiative together with my former doctoral colleague Tobias Hornig (now a data scientist at Siemens). The platform contributes to the transfer of knowledge from universities to business practice and to improving the financial situation and future prospects of doctoral students, postdocs and junior professors. Market research conducted by us has shown that our eDOCs could earn a high three-digit € amount for a two-hour research workshop in companies. At the same time, eDOCation offers companies and their employees the opportunity to benefit from state-of-the-art science in the sense of lifelong learning and to gain access to the country's brightest minds as mentors in the "war for talent". The company is currently being promoted by the Stifterverband as one of the "30 best ideas for the education, science and innovation system of tomorrow" as part of the WIRKUNG HOCH 100 initiative. More information about eDOCation is available at www.edocation.org and in the attached presentation.
 
You want to get to know us?
The eDOCation Powerbank regularly offers free and non-binding workshops that can support you in research & teaching as well as personal growth. The following events are planned for the semester break (including links to Eventbrite)

  • New Work Kits in Academia, 20.8.2021, 9:00 - 10:30
  • Spreading your research: How to become a Scientific Influencer, 2.9.2021, 9:00 - 10:30
  • Science with KNIME, 7.9.2021, 9:00 - 11:00
