On Wednesday, 28.11.2018, doctoral supervisors of TH Köln were invited to a networking meeting.

20 professors participated in this year’s networking meeting for doctoral supervisors of TH Köln. The aim of the metting was to get to know each other and to engage in mutual exchange.

An opening address by Prof. Dr. Klaus Becker, Vice President for Research and Knowledge Transfer was followed by a short information session on the current developments and the program of Graduate Center of TH Köln.  

Currently, 145 doctoral researchers are registered at TH Köln. In the past semester, the program for these young researchers extended by several events. Additionally, a cooperation with the University of Cologne was established regarding the qualification program which gives (depending on vacancy) doctoral researchers the opportunity to profit from the qualification program at the respective other university.

After the report about Graduate Center, Dr. Nadine Chmura from “Qualitätszirkel Promotion” presented background information about expectations and roles of doctoral, and introduced helpful tools for supervisors. The attending professors had the opportunity to engage in active discussion and exchange about these topics.

Lastly, the participants discussed the current needs of doctoral candidates and researchers.
