The program will include four modules:
1) A methods-based session featuring talks from selected young DANDRITEs
2) A basic science session focused on “explain your research area”, inspired by the “book a researcher” from the Danish Festival of Research from volunteers (~20 minutes; 15+5)
3) An invited speaker
4) Discussion groups/ workshops based on DANDRITE´s people suggestions
For the last one (discussion groups/ workshops), we would like to have your inputs for 1) topics ideas : it can be broad but must be relevant for everyone, then people will choose which ones they want to attend; 2) internal speakers: it can be one of your lab members or it can be yourself as a leader.
These groups must be structured and there must be always one person leading the discussion group ensuring that it is lively and dynamic. We would have two sessions, each lasting 1h (including a break in between), so people could choose 2 topics they want to sign for.
Suggested topics so far are:
Now, you are welcome to propose more suggestions. We could aim for 5-10 topics.
