Spot on PoGS Community 2023 - [...] Space for your future

We are looking back on a great event together with at our Spot on PoGS Community "[...] Space for your future". Together with you, we have explored the questions of the future: What will work in research be like in the future? What is actually behind the word "Future Skills"? What does it mean for me personally, for the university, for research? What new opportunities and challenges does it offer me? How do you prepare for a future that we don't know what it might look like? With the diverse program points, we give you [space] to explore the complexity of the future, transformation, and innovation.

The keynote at the beginning of the day gave first impulses and a common introduction to the topic. After that we discussed different topics in more detailed workshops and strengthen your [future competencies]. In think tanks, we have once again refined the questions and worked together to find creative solutions. As always, the focus was also on networking and exchange with the PoGS community.
