Shaping Your Future - Career Planning in Academia

What does it take to become a professor (in Germany)? What are key qualifications and skills? Are there other career paths in Academia (and beyond)? The workshop addresses these and other questions concerning career development in Science and thus supports participants in developing an idea of who they are professionally. Based on personal values, skill sets and qualifications we build a frame of reference for career decisions.
