April 2020 Open Access: Publishing and financing

Open Access publications are increasingly present due to corresponding specifications from research funding agencies and not least due to the so-called DEAL with Wiley. The ongoing transformation of the scientific publishing system has a considerable impact on the financing of publications. The university library briefly presents the principle of Open Access and points out some ways of financing publications with the support of the library.

This HeRA-Lunch session will be available as webcast soon.

May 2020 "Düsseldorfer Weg" for junior researchers

In frame of the two-stage certificate programme "Düsseldorf Way of Training" there is the opportunity to familiarise yourself with three different academic career paths - (1) professorship (2) academic teacher (3) science management.
In the orientation phase, programme participants deal with possible career perspectives, sharpen their scientific profile and learn how to plan (teaching) events. In the specialization phase, participants focus either on the career path to obtain a professorship, a specialization in teaching or a specialization focusing on science management. Dr. Uta Brunner (JUNO) introduces the training programme and the opportunities that come with it.

The information of this HeRA Lunch Session is available as webcast (at the end of the page). The presentation is in English.

The key to success in science lies among other things also in diversity. Diversity means an increase in different experiences, skills, ideas and solution approaches for cooperation in science and at the university. Diversity at the HHU stands for the diversity of attitudes and perspectives that result from individual personal characteristics and lifestyles (= dimensions). Dr. Inge Krümpelbeck from the HHU Diversity Coordination Office discusses how diversity can also become a success criterion in her working group.

This HeRA Lunch Session has been cancelled and will be held at a later time point.
