During the break, the doctoral researchers from all faculties had the chance to get to know each other. Then, as part of a World Café, the doctoral researchers discussed questions concerning the doctoral programs at TH Köln. Finally, the results were examined together with the Prof. Dr. Klaus Becker. At the end of the event, there was a presentation of the future events for the doctoral researchers at TH Köln.
Since 2012, the Afternoon for Doctorates provides the opportunity for doctoral researchers at TH Köln to get to know each other and be in contact with members of the university governance. Apart from an information session on different subjects, the event provided the opportunity to discuss personal requirements and voice wishes and criticism.
