The INDIGO network and the BayWISS Verbundkolleg Digitalisierung would like to cordially invite you to the digital workshop “Pitch your Research” on the 20th and 21st of October 2020 from 14:00 – 17:00.
This interactive format is aimed at PhD students from all disciplines who are dealing with the topic of digitalisation in their dissertation. In the context of a generally understandable scientific short presentation of about 10 minutes, the participants of the workshop get the chance to present their dissertation to other doctoral students and receive individual feedback. The workshop is especially suitable for obtaining interdisciplinary input for one’s own doctoral project in a peer-to-peer setting. We would also like to encourage PhD students who are currently at the beginning of their doctorate to participate in the event with a short presentation. The main language of the workshop is German but contributions in English are welcome as well.
The workshop „Pitch your Research“ will take place digitally. The PhD projects will be presented to the audience in an online live lecture. The participants will have the opportunity to interact with other doctoral students from the INDIGO network and the BayWISS network, regardless of their location. Additionally, next to the presentations of the doctoral projects, there will be plenty of opportunities for networking and interdisciplinary exchange.
It is also possible to participate in the event exclusively as a listener. Registration will be possible from September on the INDIGO homepage.
Participation in the workshop is free of charge.
Call for Papers
Submissions for short presentations can be made until the 15th of September 2020 via e-mail to the INDIGO offices (email@example.com). For this purpose, we ask the doctoral students to submit a descriptive abstract (max. 300 words) communicating:
- the key research question of the doctoral thesis
- its relation to the subject area of digitalisation
- the scientific method applied or planned to use
Additional Workshop Offer
In the run-up to the digital format „Pitch your Research“, our colleagues from the Verbundprojekt TRIO are offering the following workshops:
1. Express your Research
To give PhD students further impulses for their preparation of short presentations, the workshop “Express your Research” will sensitise the participants to the topic of knowledge transfer and will convey creative methods and storytelling for the communication with non-expert target groups through practical exercises.
2. Coaching in presentations skills
Prior to the workshop, participants have the opportunity to join a coaching in presentations skills to be fully prepared for presenting their doctoral projects. If you are interested, we kindly ask you to indicate this in your submission.
The participation in the workshop “Express your Research” and the coaching in presentation skills is optional. More information and dates will be available soon. Further information on the PhD workshop „Pitch your Research“ can be found in the attached flyer.
