I’m thankful for having the opportunity to discuss my work in a friendly and supportive environment… I find the value of the PDWW in being able to discuss my work with much more experienced researchers. Interactions with peers were useful too.
It was so much helpful for me to join the ECSB Postdoctoral writing workshop in Luxembourg in 2014. I had a great impression on the professional organisation of the workshop, with follow-up track of progress to enhance the writing quality and speed up the publication. I enjoyed a lot the workshop and received very detailed feedbacks for my paper from both senior and peer reviewers. Besides, I had a chance to broaden my knowledge and expand my networking internationally. This is really an ideal opportunity for young researchers to participate.
Few years ago I participated in the RENT Doctoral Workshop in Covilha. Overall, it was very useful and thought-provoking. But, needless to say, at that moment I wasn’t happy about every piece of advice I got. It meant more work that I believed was already well done. With that experience I believe my comments on Post-Doctoral Writing Workshop in Vilnius will be more convincing with a longer time distance, i.e. once I get my paper published. However, I was again happy that I took part in the Workshop as it was very supportive and condensed with straight-to-the-point discussions and comments both from the peers and senior researchers. I appreciate the opportunities to discuss my work outside my regular circle of colleagues and mentors. And PDWW provides the opportunity to engage with reputable scholars who are commonly on my list of references. I highly recommend this Workshop to all the researchers immediately after PhD completion related relief!
