Invitation to the 1st Leibniz PhD Network Science Slam

Times have been tough on all of us and we all really need a little fun. This is why the working group ‘WG Communication’ is organizing a Science Slam event within the Leibniz PhD Network. We invite PhD candidates from all sections to participate in this event to teach others what their field of research is all about.

For the ones not familiar: Science Slams are a platform to communicate research in an entertaining way. Make people laugh, cry or amazed by the work you’re doing – similar to conference talks, but without the formalities and that one guy sleeping in the background.

  • Who can participate? All doctoral researchers at Leibniz institutes or research museums. From all registrations, 10 speakers will be selected.
  • Presentation format? English, 10 minutes
  • When? Friday, 30 April 2020 – 5pm
  • Where? Online – via Zoom
  • How can you register as a speaker? Fill out this registration form until 30 March 2021
  • Are there prizes for the winners? Yes, of course. And glory!

We hope to get speakers from all sections, so register and represent your institute! For all others, save the date and support your representing speaker. Winners will be voted by the audience.

Last August, we published the results of our 2019 Survey. We then presented these results to several instances of the Leibniz Association: the section meetings, the administrative board, and the Präsidium. We received a lot of feedback and the presentation started many interesting discussions. One of the first direct outcome of this survey was the creation of the task force “Mental Health” within the Leibniz Association.

Now, it is time to discuss the survey results with you!

We are hereby inviting you to join us on the 15th of December 2020 at 2pm via Zoom to discuss the results of the 2019 survey.

The 5th General Assembly of the Leibniz PhD Network took place online during a pandemic!

This years General Assembly was for the first time online

On the first day, the event was opened by the former Leibniz PhD Network Spokespersons Anja Jahn and Jacob Gorenflos. After welcoming all participants, they introduced the Network’s structure, the Steering Committee, and shortly summarized the achievements of the Working Groups in the last year.

As the ongoing crisis prevented a face-to-face event, our 5th Leibniz PhD Network General Assembly (GA) 2020 took place online from 1st to 2nd October 2020. This however opened also for the first time the possibility to invite all doctoral researchers of the Leibniz Association: Around 168 doctoral researchers from 57 Leibniz institutes and museums met to exchange experiences, to network, and the representatives voted for a  new steering group.
