Advance your career

Wonder how you can create quality in research and build an academic career? The webinar series Science Conversations @NTNU aims to enhance your knowledge to advance your academic career.

Younger and more experienced researchers from different disciplines will meet, share experiences and ideas, and give concrete advice.

The webinars are designed for researchers at NTNU who want to advance in the scientific landscape. The series may also be useful for PhD candidates. 

Science Conversations @NTNU was established in the spring and continued in the autumn of 2021, as a career-building initiative during the pandemic. Feedback shows that these short lunch discussions are of value to many of our researchers, and something they can find time for in their everyday research life. Some examples:

  • Consistently good, thought-provoking questions and conversation
  • Interesting perspectives from fields different from mine
  • Range of topics; panel members from a range of disciplinary backgrounds; the clarity and professionalism of the host and moderator; the fact that the webinars are recorded
