The first Research Workshop will be held at Delft University of Technology on March 27-28, 2014. During this event the goals and research of the partners and ESRs will be introduced and jointly discussed. The following trainings on transferrable skills will be organized: ‘How to collaborate in a large research project’, ‘How to plan your project and to realize milestones and deliverables’ and ‘How to pursue a successful PhD’.
One afternoon will be dedicated to best practices in software making. This is a very important topic, because the ESR must make software that can be used by all, hence the software must satisfy minimum requirements regarding readability, documentation and portability.
Besides the trainings for the ESRs, sessions are organised to plan close collaboration in smaller groups and these plans will be plenary presented and discussed. During the meeting of the Supervisory Board the Personal Career Development Plans will be discussed and evaluated.
