Networks pose an important career factor in Academia. Your achievements and the results of your endeavors do not speak for themselves - you have to draw attention to them in an appropriate way.

Networking will help you to realize your professional goals, to successfully establish and develop collaborations - or to help other people. And you can do it online or face to face. In the workshop we will analyze your actual network and look for options to broaden and grow it, focusing on your goals. We will practice the necessary communication skills for networking and cover related topics.


You will be enabled to

  • analyze your existing network for options to enhance it
  • define what you can bring into a network (potential analysis)
  • develop a strategy for networking, targeting your individual goals
  • use communication techniques for successful networking
  • design an action plan to transfer learning outcomes
