Better safe than sorry - How early-career researchers overcome risks and avoid pitfalls when submitting applications and performing research (Lecture Series in German)

We would like to draw your attention to a new lecture series, which includes eight lectures presented during the 2020/21 winter semester that are aimed at helping early-career researchers successfully navigate the legal, ethical and formal requirements, a process frequently referred to as “compliance.” The lecture series presents the necessary information concisely and allows early-career researchers to discuss topics with the experts at the University of Bonn.

Important note: The lectures are held in German only!
