From June 12–15, a seminar for Early Stage Researchers and a meeting for the lead group of the FEWL project currently took place at the Paderborn University in Germany. There were PhD students from three countries, Germany, Finland and Estonia, who participated in the seminar.
On the first day, Ph.D. students introduced their research topics, mapped common research interests and overlaps with the FEWL project.
On the second day, there was a workshop about academic publishing and new research methods such as eye movement tracking and historical analysis.
The last day was dedicated to a workshop on academic writing. The feedback of Ph.D. students to the event was very positive.
Simultaneously, the lead group of FEWL project discussed the deliverables of the project that are due in June 2023 such as the communication and dissemination plan and data management plan. Additionally, plans for further research cooperation were discussed. All participants took part in the common dinner in the restaurant Bobberts. There was also some time left for exploring the Old Town of Paderborn. We want to express our gratitude to the Paderborn University team for the excellent
organisation of the seminar!
On the 19th of January 2023, the kick-off meeting of the project took place at Tallinn University, where partner organizations and project participants introduced the vision and schedule of each work package, and the following meetings and activities were planned.
