Leadership Academy for German-speaking Scientists and Researchers

The program is designed for outstanding researchers of all disciplines who are about to take the next step in their career – as a junior group leader in academia or industry, as assistant or full professor, as founder of a start-up or as someone taking responsibility in a research-related organization.

In two intensive five day training phases that blend self-assessment, interactive group workshops, case studies, and lectures with individual mentoring and coaching, participants will be able to develop the skills they need for the next big step in their careers. They will gain a better understanding of their personal approach to leadership, experience what it means to model leadership in research-related environments, and learn how they can further push their personal development. As a group they will motivate and surprise each other and forge essential professional bonds with each other and with key players in their field.

The GSO Leadership Academy is a joint project of German Scholars Organization with Klaus Tschira Foundation, Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres, and Schader Foundation.
