PhD students find themselves in a highly diverse and competitive research landscape. To successfully navigate their career paths, transferable skills in the areas of communication, (self)-organisation, and interpersonal relationships are essential. We believe that these skills can be acquired and, furthermore, developed. This curriculum will enable PhD students to productively deal with challenges related to the interpersonal aspects of doing science.
