Interactive Workshops & Specialized Training | TPM

Training for research institutes and scientific networks

As a researcher, sometimes you might find it hard to manage your time & daily tasks while still concentrating on your science. Our trainings deliver simple and powerful concepts to help you get your science done.

Training in transferable skills, sometimes called “soft skills”, is key for researchers’ professional development. In fact, these are the skills that will make a difference in a researcher’s career, whether inside or outside academia. However, many institutes find it challenging to provide engaging, practical training that matches the high expectations of scientists. TPM delivers interactive workshops on transferrable skills to boost your institute’s training program.
