Transferable Skills Trainings and Workshops

VISESS students are invited to participate both in VISESS-wide as well as university-wide training possibilities.

VISESS-wide trainings and topics of transferable skills and career development are developed and addressed in the frame of the Big Picture Seminar series. Each session focusses on a specific topic on which experts are invited, including topics such as "science communication," "research ethics," "career perspectives" and "disciplinarities: intra, cross, multi, inter, trans."

Furthermore, the  Center for Doctoral Studies and HR at the University of Vienna offer a broad range of training possibilities. We recommend the following trainings and workshops:

  • Research data management & good scientific practice
  • Writing presenting and communicating in EN (including: "Capturing the essence: presenting your research in 3 minutes")
