New workshop series in May: “Staying on track during the pandemic – Ideas and strategies from an international network”


In four 90mins workshops - each delivered by a facilitator from a different country - we'll share ideas, experiences and methods for staying healthy and productive throughout the pandemic.

Organised by the three Gateway Offices and the Graduate School of the University of Bayreuth and the Bayreuth-Melbourne Network, facilitators from Australia, Germany, China and France will provide insights into the different strategies and pandemic responses in their country and share their ideas for a productive PhD journey during and after lockdowns.
