Presenting yourself and your results professionally is an important skill to advance your career.

German native speakers working in Europe will be invited to the Lautrach seminar held in German, non-German speakers working in Europe will be invited to the Mainz seminar, held in English. Fellows are expected to participate once. Participation is upon invitation only. Programme and organizational details will be sent with the invitation.
