Skills to succeed - Workshop for Academics

The workshop was part of the soft-skill program offered within the Jena Alliance Life in Focus - A Carl Zeiss Foundation Project.

Networking – Is it more than a buzzword?

How can we form professional relationships? And what roles do communication and listening play into these inter- and multidisciplinary relationships? Do you want to know why we network in the first place and how we can get the most out of our connections? The event was open to all 3rd and 4th year Abbe School of Photonics doctoral researchers. Additional optional individual coachings 1-2 weeks after to the workshop were made available for each participant (individual appointments).
