Video Workshop

The participants will get a detailed insight into professional video-production. They will actively participate during all production steps (planning, scripting, shooting, and cutting) and get to know the journalists view on scientific research projects. Two video portraits about two participants and their PhD projects will be produced at this workshop. Already produced videos can be found at our YouTube channel. [more]

Oral Presentation Workshop

The participants will train oral scientific presentations. [more]
