Online Workshop on Approaches to Early-Stage Researcher Supervision

5 July 2022

RUN-EU PLUS will organise an Online Workshop on Approaches to Early-Stage Researcher Supervision on 20 September 2022, specially developed for new research supervisors and researchers wishing to take up the role of a supervisor in the future. 

PhD students are also welcome to participate in this workshop to represent the supervised postgraduate students and gain insights into the supervision process.

One essential goal of RUN-EU is that the researchers will attain advanced competencies in research and transferable skills and the ability to plan their career and learning paths towards it.

Supervisors are key actors in enabling the continuous learning and skills development processes of all researchers. Postgraduate students in turn have their own important impact on the collaboration process with a supervisor.

20 September 2022 • 10h00-16h00 CET • MS Teams
