|Infrastar PhD s during second training week|
Teamwork is a matter of practice and patience.
Once you start working as a Marie-Curie PhD student, most probably, you will find yourself working with different labs, companies, universities, and research centres having several supervisors from those places. You might have monthly meetings with five or six people to present your improvement and results, therefore, it is necessary to improve your teamwork skills to be able to adapt yourself with such a working conditions.
In the other hand, there will be some other PhD students under the same Marie-Curie program which they can be considered as your classmates. They normally live in another city or country but since PhD topics are somehow related, there is a great opportunity of teamwork and developing ideas together as well. Mari-Curie team allocates some training weeks in which all PhD s under the same program gather together and share their ideas and try to find a way to cooperate with each other.
As a Marie-Curie PhD student I would like to tell you that, not everyone find it easy to work under this highly team-basis conditions. It may look very interesting in the beginning, however, it is amazing, but I would say that seriousness and practice are very important factors to gain this teamwork skill.
In the picture above you can see my classmates and some of our supervisors, however, we are not really in the same school and in the same class.
Stay tuned for next post :)
