Spot on PoGS Community meets Science Communication

The PhDay-flyer

With Spot on PoGS Community we invited our members and interested parties to our annual festivity in Hyde Park style. In addition to the festive welcome of the new program participants and the farewell of our graduates, the topic of teaching was put in the spotlight. All participants and guests had the chance à la Speakers' Corner to discuss  with experts on the topic "Teaching?! I just want to do research... Why research can't be done without good teaching". Afterwards, the experts answered individual questions at Picnic & Chat.

proWissen Potsdam and the Potsdam Research Network again awarded a prize for science communication at the SPC event. The best contribution was awarded the WISPoP prize.
