Workshop for Young Scholars
„DAVO-Werkstattgespräche“ – Workshop for Young Scholars
26th International DAVO-Congress
Hamburg, 3-5 October 2019
During their academic qualification phase young scholars usually do not have proper opportunities to build up networks outside their affiliated institution and hardly get access to academic congresses to present their research results and expertise. Especially during the phase of work in progress external feedback and support on the project from peers and professionals as well as getting connected to other researchers is highly valuable.
DAVO-Werkstattgespräche is a platform for young scholars to present their academic qualification works and exchange with other scholars. The workshop has taken place for the first time in 2006 in Hamburg and has been held at each annual DAVO-Kongress since then.
As part of the DAVO-Kongress that takes place in Hamburg between 3-5 October 2019, young scholars have the opportunity to present their scientific theses (Master thesis, PhD) in progress in German or English language. Since the general idea of the workshop is not to present finished works, young scholars are explicitly invited to contribute their projects in an early conception or implementation stage.
