Block event: Into Science (3 ECTS)

Within the first phase of the PhD, CoBeNe students are encouraged to participate in the "Into Science" block event. This seminar aims to prime skills and competencies that are essential for a successful PhD. 
Learning Outcome: to confront with the challenges of being an early stage researcher and reflect and discuss possible coping strategies. Start will be in summer semester 2023.


The goal of this seminar is to provide PhD candidates an overview of the research disciplines, concepts, and methods offered within the VDS Cognition, Behavior and Neuroscience (CoBeNe). Faculty members from the four core disciplines Psychological Science, Behavioral & Cognitive Biology, Neurosciences, and Cognitive Humanities will introduce their fields, summarize the main topics and approaches, and explain state-of-the art research with informative examples, highlighting conceptual and/or methodological cross-connections between disciplines.

The learning outcome shall be i) knowledge about the CoBeNe disciplines at University Vienna and ii) awareness of the current research foci and methods used. Interdisciplinary thinking will be fostered by raising awareness for similarities and differences in the conceptual and methodological approaches within and between disciplines.
