CRC 1266 - Scales of Transformation

Module 2: “PhDs on track”

Module 2 is a further basic element of the training programme and is implemented for the regular evaluation of dissertation progress. In sessions that are organised according to temporal and content-related intervals, the doctoral students present their results to the expert audience of the CRC and its research network. The doctoral candidates receive feedback on their presentations and valuable content-related impulses for the further development of their research projects. In addition, specific courses related to scientific and personal training are included in this module. 

Activities: Presentation and written short reports (research results, dissertation progress)

Courses: Workshops, courses for scientific and personal training

Responsible person(s)/group: Primary and secondary supervisors, members of the CRC 1266, Graduate Centre of Kiel University
