Professional Development Days held at GUtech

The annual Professional Development Days (PDD) were launched at GUtech yesterday. The main aim is to welcome new academic and administrative staff members at GUtech and to improve the overall research and teaching environment. The one-week programme includes presentations by the Rectorate on new activities and strategic approaches to research including research funding as well as an introduction to a new student information system, workshops on teamwork, research project management and intercultural communication. On Tuesday a presentation on improving research performances was given by Elsevier, a global leader for science and business information analytics, based in the Netherlands. Elsevier publishes a large share of articles worldwide with a high impact factor. Their Scopus database facilitates the search for authors, scientific papers and affiliations as well as finding the right journal for publishing scientific research. Several workshops of the PDD are held in cooperation with the Mechanical Engineering Department of GUtech’s partner-university in Germany, RWTH Aachen University.
