This EGOS pre-Colloquium PhD Workshop provides an enjoyable opportunity for doctoral students to interact with and to learn from fellow students and experienced scholars in our field. It also provides a springboard for successful academic careers by examining important issues such as publishing, reviewing and collaborative research. Further, the workshop enables participants to approach their doctoral dissertations with renewed vigor by engaging in discussions on research design and methodologies with renowned colleagues, and by reviewing their dissertation proposals with the help of others: fellow participants and senior researchers who work in the respective area of scholarly inquiry. Finally, through the mix of European and international students as well as faculty members, participants gain exposure to similarities and differences across countries and continents in how academic processes work. This also enhances their understanding with regard to different career opportunities and career paths.
