Scientist's Day 2023: Internationalization of Your Career

The Scientist's Day will be held on June 6, 2023. What does internationality mean for your career planning as a scientist? How important are stays abroad and international visibility? Working abroad as a researcher can enrich your scientific work, broaden your perspective and academic network, and strengthen your professional profile. But who can travel where for conferences, field and laboratory visits? And what do international researchers* experience at Philipps-Universität Marburg?

The topic also concerns questions of digital availability of your own publications (open access) and the global visibility of your own research focus. What decisions regarding a digital visibility and publication strategy should and must you make in this regard?

In a short presentation, the International Office of Philipps-Universität Marburg will open up possibilities how to organize mobility during the doctoral and postdoc phases. What does "internationalization at home" mean in this context?

Intercultural Training, Musizierhaus in the Old Botanical Garden
