This 1.5 day workshop is designed to show you the impact you can have on the world by using and further developing your research skills. As a PhD candidate, you will spend the next years deeply exploring a given scientific field, but in the same time you will be unconsciously working on the research skills highly valued in research-related jobs, and far beyond those. Starting your PhD is the right time to become aware of your current level, so you can understand which skills you can start using immediately to help your research team, as well as which skills would need some more training before you finish your PhD.

The workshop consists of highly interactive team-based activities, where you will get to know yourself and your colleagues better, and explore the power of collaborative interdisciplinary work. Make sure you are fully ready for this unique immersive experience, of what it means to be a researcher working on crucial and complex problems in interdisciplinary international teams, and how to maximise the impact of your PhD training to help you succeed in your careers in France or abroad.

Tamara Milosevic has been developing learning-through-research courses for the last 7 years after finishing her Ph.D. in interdisciplinary life sciences. Her main goal is to design the learning experience where students (and life-long learners!) gradually develop research and transversal skills and increase their understanding of life sciences. Recently she co-founded Rhizome Association, which promotes the vision of future education, based on active learning, skills development and interdisciplinary projects in science, arts and civic engagement. The goal of Rhizome Association is to develop and implement educational programs and interdisciplinary projects, focusing on sustainable development goals. She is an independent consultant in pedagogical innovation since 2015, and has been teaching at the undergraduate level since 2012.
