Soft Skills Programme

Soft Skills Programme: Set of independent modules, including topics such as Ethics in Science, Bioethics, Scientific writing, Science Communication. Some modules may have variants depending on the scientific area or may have relevance only to some scientific areas. Each module is organised as workshops. The participants will choose the modules they deem most relevant. Modules are most useful at the beginning of the PhD.

1. Scientific Writing and Communication.

The objective of this course is to introduce participants to the details of communication and writing scientific publications. The main emphasis is on the most common form, the “primary scientific paper”, but other forms will be covered. Matters related to oral presentations, poster preparation and proposal writing will also be discussed. Thus participants will become familiar with the forms of presenting new findings to various scientific forums.

Please note that the main focus of this course is on how to structure a scientific text, i.e. the rules and requirements, building up the actual text, presenting findings, etc., and not very much on the actual language, i.e. grammar, vocabulary, language structure, etc. The latter will only be touched briefly upon.
