Research Explorer Ruhr 2022 is in the books! 17 aspiring researchers from 16 countries found their way to the University Alliance Ruhr and enjoyed their two-week stays at Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and the University of Duisburg-Essen. Thanks to a very promising group with researchers from life sciences, natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, and the humanities.

In addition to a presentation training and a course on good scientific practice (both in English language), the offer also includes a methods workshop on data analysis with MAXQDA.
How can I communicate about my research? Through which channels do I reach my target groups? How much time should I invest in science communication? At our Sommerabend on 28 June, researchers from the UA Ruhr universities shared their experiences and gave insights into their activities on these and many other questions.
