TUTECH ACADEMY WORKSHOPS

This seminar is intended to provide a better understanding of the basics of the modern application of so-called ‘boilerplate clauses’. It is based on numerous case studies, from business life, that provide the highest degree of ‘hands-on’ experience in linguistic usage. It starts with an analysis of the basic steps in contract design and discusses the different types of boilerplates applied. Participants will receive ‘sample boilerplates’ during the seminar.

For those with a basic understanding of how Common Law contracts and agreements are set up, applied and interpreted in English, this seminar is designed to develop your skills and knowledge further. We will deal with the principles of ‘boilerplates’ and standard types of contract clauses along with issues of liability. We will look at the purpose behind the typical boilerplate clauses as well as the preferred formulations and, where relevant, discuss the relevance of the Common Law clauses in the German/Civil Law context.

Understanding how to draft and develop contracts and other legal documents in English is important. Whether one is writing an email or a letter, or negotiating a contract, legal English and legal writing skills are essential.

The seminar will be held largely in English. German explanations will be given as needed.

This workshop provides background knowledge, understanding and tools for developing and writing proposals for research funding. Horizon Europe, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, acts as a model; the skills learned are transferable to other types of research funding programme.

Participants will acquire background knowledge, understanding and tools that they can use to develop proposals for research funding for multi-disciplinary collaborative projects in Horizon Europe, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. The skills learned are also transferable to other international, European or national research funding programmes.

If you’ve made an important research breakthrough, other people should know about it. This workshop looks at how journalists work and at how to tell your story succinctly and clearly so that a non-specialist audience will understand you.

Winning research funding is a competitive business. With much funding now targeted at international cooperation, the ability to write effectively and convincingly in English is a requirement of any researcher. This workshop is designed to help those who do not have English as their native language, to improve their ability to write research proposals especially for European funding programmes.

Active participation in debates and at conferences considerably enhances your visibility in the field. Any presentation invites valuable instant responses that written communication cannot provide. Yet presenting your research project in English can be a daunting prospect. This workshop is designed to help those who do not have English as their native language master the art of the successful presentation.

This classic workshop has been delivered in various forms for well over a decade, but remains extremely popular as a hands-on introduction to the art of managing multi-disciplinary, multi-organisational research projects. The Horizon 2020 Framework Programme is used as a model, but the approach is applicable to multi-partner projects.

The workshop aims to give an understanding of what it means to translate knowledge, or ideas, into something that creates economic and societal benefit – in other words innovation. The workshop will develop the participants’ ability to relate to how business views knowledge and give an understanding of what it takes to exploit knowledge for commercial gain.

The idea of this workshop is to explore in a hands-on manner what it means to build a business and the tools needed. The workshop is very practical and interactive in nature.

ReMaT is an intensive, interactive workshop, providing an introduction to a number of key topics relating to research management including project management, grant acquisition, and science and technology related entrepreneurship.

Risk and uncertainty typify the development of a research career at the postdoctoral stage. Promising research careers often have to be abandoned because of insufficient planning, systems knowledge or professional management skills rather than a lack of subject knowledge or research excellence.

The continuity of research funding often makes or breaks a research career at the postdoctoral stage. As institutional core funding diminishes and external funding becomes more and more competitive, how do you build your re-sources systematically and mitigate the risk of gaps in funding? The workshop explores the concept of strategy in the research context.

Research management support has become an important function in its own right, but there is little formal training that can prepare people for this important service function. The purpose of this workshop is to share experience.

In a global world personal contacts become more important. Knowing and being known to a wide range of people provides substantially more opportunities to carry out top-level research and win grants. This workshop will serve to convey strategies for developing effective personal networks and to explore how to approach people from organisations outside your own.

Increasing attention is being paid to ethical issues relating to ICT development. All projects submitted to Horizon Europe must respect fundamental ethical principles in order to be funded, though these may not be so obvious for many engaged in ICT. This workshop aims to introduce the topic of ethics to ICT practitioners, explaining what the issues are and, through the use of case studies, to show what some of the pitfalls might be in the case of advanced technology and applications development.

Are you keen to capitalise on the new ideas, technology and talent coming out of universities? But do you find academics difficult to engage with? How do you reconcile the university’s public interest mandate with your company’s commercial needs? And how can you formalise your relationship in a contract that works for both parties?
