In view of the current difficult situation of holding in-person colloquia for our SP2 activity, a virtual meeting took place on 7 December 2020 to discuss a proposal of a new format replacing this activity.
The idea is to let each PhD candidate produce a short video about his/her own research. This video production will be professionally supported by the Media centre of the University.
Motivation: Scientific videos have a broad visibility contributing to the identity shaping of the individual PhD candidates as well as the collective SP2 group.
Expected media outcome: The first stage goal consists in creating a short scientific video including the presentation of the respective PhD candidate, a high-level overview of his/her research field and his/her research. The head of the Media centre, Sascha Helsper, kindly agreed to lead a tutorial on (scientific) video production and to help out with the equipment of the Media center.
SP2 meetings: We will resume to meet on a regular basis to discuss the videos and have an open discussion with the PhD candidates. Along with research-based discussions, Sascha Helsper’s attendance to the meetings will provide us with professional media feedback at expert level.
We express our gratitude to Sascha for his voluntary attendance to the SP2 meetings and his valuable inputs.
The next Meeting will be scheduled in January / February 2021, with the exact date and time communicated to every SP2 member via email.
