During the 5th DCVA Translational Cardiovascular Research Meeting we give young researchers the possibility to follow workshops:

Personal media strategy – a quick guide into the world of social and traditional media:

This workshop offers a brief introduction in the world of the media. Both social media such as Twitter and LinkedIn as well as traditional media such as radio, television and written press are covered. You will learn how to match media with your target audiences, goals, and talents. During some practical exercises you will train the skills you need when sharing your research with people outside academia.

Networking – how to find, approach, and connect with project partners, mentors, and future employers:

This workshop explores the different stages of networking in academia. You practice your pitching skills by composing a brief message aimed at a person who could help you to reach the next level in your career. In the second part of the workshop, you try out the networking tips and tricks on a panel of senior researchers, who also share their experiences with you. The panel members will offer feedback on the messages composed by the participants. Actually, during the workshop some real connections might be made.
