Workshop on "Presenting with an Impact"

Mostafa Moonir Shawrav's picture

The Marie Curie Alumni Association Austrian Chapter (MCA3C) brings you:

PRESENTING WITH AN IMPACT

This dynamic, highly interactive and practical one-day workshop was created for scientists who want to develop their presentation and speaking skills and take them to a new level. The workshop is participant driven and delegates are encouraged to share their experience, knowledge and skills.

The workshop is designed to both sharpen core presentation skills and integrate these into the work of a lecturer whether it is presenting to home or international students, or speaking at an international conference. The course will refresh and build on current skills, teach new ways of thinking with a more international approach and build self-confidence when presenting.

Location: Floragasse 7, 1040 Vienna, Austria
Date: June 12th, 2017
Time: 09:30-18:00
 

The workshop is open to all researchers. Participation for MCAA members is free of charge and non-member fees are:

Early-bird fee for registration until May 5th, 2017 - 40 Euro

(payment must be received by this date)

Regular fee for registration after May 5th, 2017 - 60 Euro

Registration includes two coffee breaks, lunch, workshop materials and a certificate of participation.

MCAA Members and non-members must pre-register to attend the workshop. Deadline for registration is May 25th, 2017 and last date for regular registration payment is June 1, 2017. After the payment, please send a copy of bank confirmation to: mostafa.shawrav@tuwien.ac.at

CROWD_USG is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie research project exploring how ICT-people interactions are transforming the governance of urban sustainability.

In the global imaginary cities are increasingly depicted as the appropriate loci for tackling with a number of interrelated and complex issues - ranging from protecting the environment, to incubating innovation and granting social justice. The socio-technological networks, which progressively emerged for addressing the related tasks, are now significantly changing the traditional forms of urban governance. In these contexts, technologies are often presented as both facilitators and drivers of changes.

Nevertheless, the assumption that broadening technological access will lead to people’s empowerment and make participation effective is questionable.  CROWD_USG project investigates under what conditions crowdsourcing (i.e. any open call format toward collective solution seeking by a large network of users) can actually turn governance processes into open and shared opportunities for advancing socio-environmental sustainability in the city.

This seminar will present the background, motivations, scope and expected results of the project, by exploring current scientific production and forefront applications of participatory ICTs toward urban sustainability. Theoretical and methodological approach will be open for discussion with colleagues, in reference to the case of Ghent.

6th BI-ANNUAL EUROPEAN & INTERNATIONAL
WOMEN INVENTORS, INNOVATORS & ENTREPRENEURS
EXHIBITION, CONFERENCE & AWARDS 2017

A catalyst platform for the brilliance of new products, processes and services

Join individual inventors, innovators, SME and multi-national companies, academia, the research industry and civil society in the heart of Bari, Italy from across Europe and the international world with a focus on women making positive changes and impact with the introduction of new products, processes and services

The International EUWIIN Awards are staged to put the spotlight on various women from across Europe and the international world. The women may be brilliant scientists, exceptionally creative, inventive, innovative, entrepreneurs, engineers, technologists, designers from all sectors and backgrounds or the inspired designers of simple, cheap technologies. They may also have created a new device or system or process capable of impacting millions of people for the better. They may have leadership qualities, attract loyalty and respect.

They may inspire the support of colleagues and employees. They may build powerful teams, capable of dramatically leveraging the impact of their efforts. They are likely to be relentless in pursuing their goals. The winners may be very different, but they will have in common: tenacity, the determination to succeed, commitment, extraordinary potential, someone whose positive influence could spread, transcending borders, something that can contribute to the future and quality of life on earth
