This Semester’s Focus: Cooperation and Collaboration

Cooperation in science and research is indispensable – at multiple levels: Big research projects involve different – often interdisciplinary – research groups, but also research proposals frequently require collaboration with colleagues from home and abroad and more and more projects are developed in cooperation with non-university research institutes or industrial partners.

Also at your chair or in your lab, cooperation with colleagues is valuable, if not unavoidable. Furthermore, good cooperation skills are not only crucial in science – also companies expect these skills from their employees in order to meet the requirements of today’s world of work adequately.

Cooperation skills can be developed and improved. Therefore, in this semester we offer several courses that will support you to strengthen your own skill sets. Whether you want to get inspired by our Semester Opening Talk “Science as Cooperation? Theoretical and Empirical Approaches” or need hands-on teamwork and negotiation skills training, our wide selection of courses and speeches will provide the right offer for you:
