Co-writing session: create your own “how to work with me” manual

A 'how to work with me' manual is like a cheat sheet for your collaborators! It's a handy guide that tells them what it's like to work with you and what your needs and preferences are, so they have more understanding of how to get the best results from a collaboration. Express interest in joining a co-writing session to create your own manual and we'll add the event to your calendar.

Ask Effective Thesis Alumni Q&A session with Niklas Lehmann

In our ‘Ask Effective Thesis Alumni’ series we ask our speakers how they chose their thesis topic, how Effective Thesis supported them, and what skills were most valuable to them while working on their research. Niklas Lehmann is our next speaker for Ask Effective Thesis Alumni and among the winners of the Exceptional Research Award. Niklas studied economics and business administration after having studied Mechanical Engineering. He decided to switch to economics to broaden his skillset and because he found economic questions fascinating. Currently, Niklas is working as a research associate at the TU Freiberg, where he intends to further explore forecasting technological and social changes.
