At the PhD event six disputes and workshops are being organised.

Disputes

Disputes are about the exchange of ideas and views about a specific subject in a small group. Two speakers will give their vision, after which the participants will discuss the subject looking at it from different scientific disciplines. All participants are equal and can freely express their views and opinions.

Expectations of a promoter

Working as a Chinese PhD candidate in the Netherlands means adjusting to the Dutch scientific system, to different customs and expectations. Looking at it from the promoter point of view: what does a promoter expect of a PhD candidate? What is expected of a PhD candidate within the Dutch science system? Being responsible for your own work even in a PhD subject that is not your own choice. Working according to a code of conduct.

Expectations of a PhD candidate

Working as a Chinese PhD candidate in the Netherlands means adjusting to the Dutch scientific system, to different customs and expectations. Looking at it from the PhD point of view: what do PhD candidates expect from their PhD project and from their promoter. Which problems does a Chinese PhD candidate encounter during a PhD project in the Netherlands. Sharing tips and trics.

Academic freedom

Doing research and publishing the results, brings responsibilities. How to handle these responsibilities and conflicting situations that may occur. Looking at: integrity, confidentiality against the necessity to share your data, verifiability of your data, freedom to publish your research results.

Workshops

Workshops are practical in design and give in a short amount of time direction, tips and trics to broader subjects. In a small group with one instructor the participants will actively work on a subject and at the end will be able put their new skills into practice.

‘FameLab’

Networking is very important, even more when you are working as a foreign researcher in a new country. In FameLab young scientists from different scientific disciplines learn how to present themselves and their research in three minutes in a clear and inspiring way. After the workshop all participants will all have their own ‘elevator pitch’.

‘Scientific writing' (natural sciences)

Writing a scientific article or a chapter of your PhD thesis in a new environment with different customs and codes than your used to, is challenging. In ‘writing it right’ all participants will get tips and trics they can use in the process of writing. At the end of the workshop they will have the structure or the index of an article or chapter they have to write. This workshop is focussed on research within the natural sciences.

‘Scientific writing' (social sciences/humanities)

Writing a scientific article or a chapter of your PhD thesis in a new environment with different customs and codes than your used to, is challenging. In ‘writing it right’ all participants will get tips and trics they can use in the process of writing. At the end of the workshop they will have the structure or the index of an article or chapter they have to write. This workshop is focussed on research within the social sciences and humanities.
