This event will take place online, March 15 – 19, 2021
Part 1 (scientific writing):
A three-day course on scientific writing including thesis, paper and report writing, writing funding applications and writing for non-specialists audiences and the various pitfalls.
Participants will provide samples of their own writing, receive feedback as well as assessing their peers.
Part 2 (communication skills):
A two-day school where researchers, via experiential learning, can hone their communication, team-working and problem-solving skills. This course will contribute to the individual development of ESRs but also enhance the cohesion of the network and so we will run this in the first year of the network, partly as a team-building exercise.
