For the second time already the Stem Cell Network NRW is offering a three-part workshop series to help young scientists preparing for the next steps in their career.

Young scientists are often not sufficiently prepared for upcoming management tasks such as setting up and leading their own research group. In order to ease the transition to the next career phase and provide them with adequate tools for dealing with challenges such as taking on personnel responsibility, the Stem Cell Network NRW initiated a leadership training program last year. It is specifically aimed at postdocs, group leaders and junior professors (or scientists in similar positions) working on a stem cell-related topic in NRW. Researchers concerned with ethical, legal, or social aspects of stem cell research can also participate.

The leadership training series consists of a two-day workshop on October 6/7 and two follow-up workshops (one day each) on November 9 and December 7 2021. The sessions will be led by a professional coach with a long-lasting track record in leadership training and are planned as onsite meetings with a small group size. The workshops will take place in Cologne and Düsseldorf. However, if the pandemic situation worsens, they may be postponed or held as online meetings.

The participation fee for the complete workshop series is 100 Euros.

Registration is closed, but there is still room for a few more participants. In case you are interested please contact us: info[at]
