The BIST “Leadership in Action” course for post-doctoral researchers, exclusively designed for BIST by VITAE, kicked off this morning in the beautiful setting of the Montserrat Hotel & Training Centre in Collbató, Barcelona.
The BIST Leadership in Action course is a three day interactive program that offers BIST post-doctoral fellows the opportunity to focus on developing those skills that are essential for successful self-management and development in order to progress in a professional career. The course is offered to post-doctoral researchers currently working at one of the BIST research centres (CRG, ICFO, ICIQ, ICN2, IFAE, IRB Barcelona).
The course is part of the BIST Talent program, which aims to attract, retain, and develop the brightest researchers and professionals by providing career development activities that meet their needs at all stages of their professional growth.
More about BIST’s Talent mission:
BIST understands the need to support the different professional careers to help its teams reach a level of international excellence. We follow the recommendations of the European Charter for Researchers and code of conduct assuming that mobility is inherent in a research career. We are therefore empowering our researchers with the capacities that enable them to work with other research centers in different cultural environments, and to address projects that combine different disciplines or explore business development opportunities related to their research results. We are committed to a global citizen, a global researcher.
