BeNA Guru Talk

The next BeNA Guru Talk will take place on July 3, 2019 (6-7 pm) at the DIW Berlin (Elinor Ostrom Hall).

We are happy to announce that Analia Schlosser (Tel Aviv University), Jan Marcus (DIW and University of Hamburg) and Hannes Ullrich (DIW, University of Copenhagen and University of Zurich) will be our gurus.

The topic will be Communication in research and academia. How important is it to distribute one’s work on Twitter, blogs or in newspapers? What were especially positive or negative experiences? Furthermore we also want to talk about networking and interdisciplinary dialogue. In short, how can researchers make their research known to other researchers and to the public, and what are potential limitations or dangers?

The Guru Talk will take place directly after this year’s summer workshop. The event is open to anyone interested, regardless of being a BeNA member or a participant of the workshop. The audience is warmly invited to ask the gurus questions. Pretzels, beer and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Jonas and Markus

The BeNA Guru Talk series is a new format aimed at doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers in economics where professionals from academia, the public, and private sectors are invited to talk about their PhD careers and to answer questions regarding what to do and what to avoid during your PhD, how to decide what to do after your PhD, and how to make the best of your PhD years.

Previous talks were held on topics such as Submition and Publication Process, Choice of the PhD topic and Co-authors, Research Stays Abroad  or Career Perspectives after the PhD.
