Workshops and talks for scientists

Please explore our interactive workshops and talks: for scientists, by scientists. 

Almost all topics can be offered in English, German, and Dutch.

Please look at our Online Academy for free previews of our courses.

For more in-depth one-on-one interactions, we also offer private coaching

We also moderate events like conferences and panel discussions.

Pitch your science

Pitch your science

The question “what do you do?” seems so simple, but scientists often find it hard to answer. How can you explain what you are working on without boring the other and start an engaging conversation?


Online or in-house? The right format for every type of learner

We often get questions like: “Shall I conduct this training as in-house training or online course?” or “Why should I book your online academy, there are many free MOOCs online?” There is no clear answer, so let´s look at the merits of each course format.

Online courses and blended-learning activities for scientists.

We started developing online workshops in early 2019, fully one year before Corona hit Europe. We love the flexibility that these formats give to the coordinators and participants: we typically have one webinar (2-2.5 h) per day, each followed by self-paced work on our learning platform. After the webinar phase, the participants have three weeks to dive deeper into the course material and receive individual feedback from the course instructors. 

Private coaching

We can help you with:

Career transitions, e.g., from the PhD or postdoc into a non-academic job field: how do you find employers that fit your needs, how do you successfully convince the employer in your application documents and the job interview?

Grant applications. How do you present yourself and your science in front of an expert panel? 

Moderations for your event

Do you need a light-hearted moderator for a conference, meeting, or social evening event?

Or are you looking for a moderator for a contentious discussion or a brainstorming session? 

Please get in touch to discuss the possibilities.
