First POLISS Summer School 6th – 17th September 2021 in Utrecht

After a slight postponement due to Covid-19 related restrictions, we were able to meet face-to-face in Utrecht for our first POLISS Summer School – for those who could not join us physically we had a livestream connection throughout the programme.

For this first training week our aim was to exchange information to further our knowledge and skills and to strengthen our group dynamics. To make sure the needs of the PhD research fellows was met, we had a brief survey prior to the training to identify subjects the PhDs wanted to address. This resulted in a programme addressing the following issues:

Knowledge & Research

  • Research Ethics?
  • Lectures
  • Research Presentations ESRs

Transferable Skills

  • Presentation Skills
  • Data Management & Privacy
  • Open Science
  • Research methods

  • Policy Makers

Group Dynamics
