Our first research school will be held this month in Berlin!

At 27-28th November for two days, we will meet in w3.hub to think, learn, and discuss together to explore new research ideas for future resilient networks. Alongside several group activities, we will have three guest speakers to share their expertise and experience that can be greatly helpful for the academic journey of our early career researchers.

Dr. Egemen Çetinkaya will give us a presentation about ResiliNets, which is one of the most comprehensive projects offering a general framework on the aspects, components, requirements, and mechanisms of network resilience.

Aslihan Bener will tell the secrets of making compelling and engaging talks as a skill to be used in both academic and non-academic settings.

Finally, Dr. Carine Galli Marxer will share her experience in project management in academia and tell us about her book, Project Management for Success in Research, which introduces a perfectly structured framework to plan and manage research projects.

You can also find the detailed program here!
