Time is our most precious asset. What we do with our time is what we do with our lives. To have a good life, it is therefore important to manage one's time wisely. However, the daily life of a researcher and the demands associated with an academic career make this task difficult. There are so many things competing for our time: conducting research projects, writing papers, teaching, attending work meetings, applying for conferences, responding to other people's requests, social commitments, family, errands, etc. So much to do, so many distractions, and so much pressure to be successful!

This workshop is designed to help you manage your time and make the most of it. To this end, we will identify where your time is currently going, what your priorities are, and how to achieve your goals. You will learn simple methods to organize your time more efficiently, work smarter instead of harder, and enjoy what you do with your days.


This workshop is interactive and takes place in a relaxed atmosphere. It consists of discussions, individual and group exercises, and short presentations based on lectures. The inputs and methods taught in this workshop are easy to use, effective, and directly applicable to the participants' current situation.

Group size: max. 15 participants

The workshop will take place online via ZOOM.
