OEduverse Project: Design your Research Environment | Summer School – Hackathon

Our research environment is far from perfect. Together, in this OEduverse Summer School - Hackathon we can design the environment to thrive in. Join PhD students from other research disciplines, experts, and trainers from mental wellbeing, open science, and communication to design a roadmap that you, as an individual, can take action on either in the course of your work on within your home institution. Using guided reflection, working in teams, use cases, and practical workshops, you will go from creating a dystopia to a utopia and develop the tools needed to make it a reality. 

To advance the needs of the research community, the Erasmus+ funded OEduverse Project equips European graduate students with interdisciplinary and transferable skills that are beyond their specialisation yet expected by their future employers. The OEduverse project involves Trinity College Dublin Student Counseling Services, Siegen University, The Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB), the Marie Curie Alumni Association, Eurodoc, SPACE, and the SciLink Foundation.

Please note, there will be a fee to attend: 50 EUR for current PhD students and 95 EUR for supervisors and postdocs.
