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 and give concrete advice to advance your career.

The series 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. 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
