Prototype your PhD

TWO-DAY WORKSHOP FOR DOCTORAL CANDIDATES and Post Docs

Make your research clear to others – with tangible prototypes!

The workshop 'Prototype your PhD' will enable you to inspire and convince different audiences of your research. Through storytelling, you will learn how to create an audience-oriented story of your project which helps you to spark your listeners’ interest, and to successfully convey the relevancy of your research.

With Rapid Prototyping, you can transfer any theoretical or complex topic into a tangible visualization (prototype). Thereby, you make research comprehensible and accessible for your listeners – also outside the scientific community.

The English workshop is directed at doctoral candidates and post docs of all disciplines.

how you will benefit:
  • Storytelling: Enthuse and convince your desired (non-scientific) group of listeners of your research by telling your story

  • Rapid Prototyping: Build simple prototypes of your research to convey your message comprehensibly, and benefit from a 6-months scholarship of the MakerSpace after the workshop

  • Design Thinking: Get to know new creativity techniques for your daily work in the inspiring environment of UnternehmerTUM

  • Audience-centeredness: Learn to understand your listeners and stakeholders in order to tailor your conversation according to their needs and wants

  • Confidence: Become more confident in communicating your research outside the scientific community
