Intercultural Communication Among Young Scientists
Start date: 01 Oct 2012,

A career of a life scientist involves frequent travelling and working in an international environment. Intercultural encounters within and outside Europe are therefore impossible to avoid. A miscommunication originating from the cultural differences may however create complex problems. To address this issue, the Young European Biotech Network (YEBN) and its Institutional Members ASSB (Poland), btS (Germany), Club Biotech (Austria), FEBiotec (Spain) and NGB (France) offer a Training Course on "Intercultural Communication Among Young Scientists". YEBN, as an umbrella organisation, will be handling the international aspects of the meeting, whereas Club Biotech will be the hosting organisation. The training will take place in Vienna (Austria) and will last 3 days. Around 35 young biotechnologists will be given the opportunity to participate in this interactive workshop. The workshop will challenge their communication skills and raise their awareness of possible implications of cultural differences on communication. They will train their intercultural communication skills by non-formal learning methods such as group work, role play and case studies. The knowledge they will gain will be easily transferable to their daily life and studies, as well as to their work as group leaders of intercultural youth groups on a European level.
