Practical Informations

We will organize 2 workshops:

1) To share with students challenges in adjusting the professional and personal time, on Wednesday evening we will organize “Science and Life” dinner when the international speakers will join students over dinner to talk about their life in science, their achievements and their failures, good and bad about moments in their carrier. We would like to hear about inspirations, satisfaction, motivations…but also about the challenges and difficulties in our jobs and how that reflects on our personal life.

2) Outreach workshop, students will be exposed to presentations how to talk about science to wide audience.

We will also organize visit to Curie Museum

 

Students' presentations. In the evening, during dinner, the students will present their research in the format of 10 minutes of chalk talk using only a whiteboard (2 evenings).

To motivate students to interact with speakers, we will assign each speaker to 2 students. Students will be expected to read recent papers from the speaker’s lab, introduce the speaker, chair questions after his/her talk, and serve as a guide/host for the speaker during the course.
