The Importance of Networking in Academia

Dr. Katja Simons, Executive Director, Campus OWL New York (Liaison Office of Bielefeld University, Paderborn University, Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences, OWL University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Detmold University of Music)| 28.02.2024 | 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM | online


Networking is something we all know we should be doing (more). The most effective networking is done regularly over time not just when you need help with something. Ideally, networking is a give-and-take: collaborative and reciprocal. We will discuss the many benefits of networking with people inside your institution, outside as well as abroad. We will explore different ways and platforms for networking and how it will support your (academic) career. The session will include a presentation to stimulate the discussion and an exchange of ideas in break out rooms.
