Promotion of Early Career Researchers Transferable Skills

Swiss Transferable Skills Network

The Swiss Transferable Skills Network was begun in 2014 and is composed of the managers of transferable skills training programmes for junior researchers (primarily doctoral candidates and postdocs) in the Swiss universities.

The group’s objective is to provide a space for exchange and support among and between its members: to discuss good practice and the challenges faced in common areas, experiences with training courses or trainers, and to share resources in order to provide specialized professional development. The group currently meets once per year, and remains in informal contact as and when the opportunity arises.
