The workshop

The Academic Skills Workshop is organized by Alexandra Vlassova and Mireille Babineau

10.30am - 3pm

Past event

The Academic Skills Workshop aims to provide practical information and advice for early career researchers and students about topics that aren't typically formally taught or discussed.


The day will consist of a series of short talks, with topics ranging from how to prepare yourself now for future grant and job applications, to how to network and set up successful collaborations. The day will end with a general panel session, where our speakers and audience will be able to ask and discuss any questions they may have about academia. By the end of the day, we hope that our attendees will have a better idea of what they need to be doing (outside of research and publishing) to ensure their future academic (or industry!) success.
