Sowohl bei der Versorgung der Kinder, als auch in der eigenen beruflichen Weiterentwicklung möchten wir als moderne Väter, Männer und Kollegen unseren Beitrag zu einem chancengerechten Miteinander leisten.

In diesem Workshop reflektieren Sie in einem professionellen Rahmen, um konstruktiv und ressourcenorientiert mit diesen Bedingungen umzugehen. Zudem erhalten Techniken zur Aktivierung der eigenen mentalen Stärke und Werkzeuge, mit denen Sie herausfordernde Situationen reflektieren können.

ALL DISCIPLINES: League of European Research Universities (LERU) – Online-Event “LERU’s view on holistic doctoral supervision”

When? 28.02.2023, 10.30 am – 12.30 pm

Where? Online

Supervision of doctoral researchers is a central aspect of doctoral education, which is a core activity of universities, especially research-intensive ones. While it is broadly accepted that doctoral researchers need access to skills training that will prepare them for this ambiguous and uncertain world, universities also need to raise their awareness of the complexity of the supervisory task.

With this paper, LERU member institutions propose a holistic view of supervision aimed at supporting doctoral researchers in becoming future leaders in all sectors of societal relevance, in academia and beyond.

At the online event, the key findings of the paper are introduced to the public. Afterwards there is the possibility to ask questions to the lead authors and discuss the main findings.

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).

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.

Funding is basically reserved for projects that are related to the promotion areas of the Foundation and have a clear connection to the German research system. This connection can be established either at a personal level through German scientists working on the project, at an institutional level through non-German scientists being affiliated to German research institutes or through studies on topics related thematically to German research interests.

No stipends are awarded for doctoral dissertations or “Habilitationen” (post-doctoral research) or to complete such works to follow up support through other institutions. The foundation generally does not accept any applications for projects if applications are being filed with other institutions offering support at the same time.
