Inhalte der Veranstaltung/ Seminar’s objectives:
To successfully tackle the challenges of today's multicultural academic and professional landscape, researchers have to be able to facilitate difficult conversations and manage intercultural work situations and conflicts effectively. Building the capacity to mediate successfully with differing cultural perspectives is a critical component for creating and maintaining sustainable professional relationships and performance in this field. Designed as an interactive workshop, this training provides participants with essential cross-cultural skills for building collaborative relationships and work effectively in the field of science and research. Using hands-on exercises and simulation role-plays, participants will identify and analyze personal approaches to different intercultural situations, practice giving presentations to an international audience considering intercultural aspects, build their capacity as facilitators and problem-solvers in international research teams and increase their cross-cultural competency.
