Working in academia often requires capturing and evaluating different perspectives. The negotiation processes that take place are found in all areas of research, e.g. in scientific discourse, strategic decisions or the negotiation of contracts. Negotiation requires skills from various fields in order to finally reach a workable compromise that all parties involved can agree to.

This workshop aims to identify and understand possible negotiation situations, to develop one's own personal negotiation strategy and to implement it in exemplary situations.

When do we negotiate?

  • Identifying negotiation setups in your individual situation and understanding the different roles involved

What do I want?

  • Understanding basics of project management with special emphasis on setting and managing your goals


  • Communication fundamentals and their effects during negotiations

How to argue?

  • Introducing and trying out different argumentation tactics

What can we get out of it?

  • Finding mutual beneficial agreements through understanding and supporting your negotiation partners via the Harvard principle

Ok, we agreed, what now?

My next steps!
