UWI Student Research Council

In March, the doctoral students came together for two days to hold their first self-organised Student Research Council.
Set in a seminar house outside of Berlin, this created a relaxed and productive working environment.
At first, an organised workshop with professional and structured input on collaborative working using examples of actual work within the common topic groups provided both, basics of collaborative working and reflection on current collaboration between and within the groups.
Applying insights and momentum from the workshop, the doctoral students then used the remaining time to work within the common topic groups, brainstorm new ideas, reflect on methods and help each other with different software, models and other skills.
All in all, the mixture of a good working environment, professional input, and time to work together created excellent conditions and lead to a stronger team cohesion, interesting exchanges, new ideas, and improved collaborative efforts.
