Flexible Coaching Sessions

I inform groups of 8-16 graduate students, PostDocs and/or faculty members about the standard statutes of research integrity and compare them against the local regulations at place. However, courses do not focus on compliance alone but prepare scientists for the complexities and dilemmas of the day-to-day research life by promoting moral and value development. Sessions can be booked for as little as a 1.5 hrs lectures to two-days workshops (preferred). Courses are offered both in German or English - Also available as ONLINE course!
