The University Rankings Committee at the University of Silesia invites you to participate in a series of training sessions related to promoting scientific research.

Dear Scientists of the University of Silesia,
The University Rankings Committee, with the support of the Scientific Information Centre and Academic Library, organises a series of 5 quick training sessions supporting the visibility of our scientific research. The training sessions are planned to take place online via MS Teams to facilitate participation, and so that every scientist can work (interactively) on one’s researcher profile during training. Training sessions will be short and realised during the long break, i.e. 1–1.45 p.m., so that everyone can take part in them.

Training No. 1 is to take place on 6 and 14 December 2022. Each meeting focuses on a specific scientific area. Therefore, the meeting on 6 December is addressed to scientists of the Faculty of Science and Technology and the Faculty of Natural Sciences. Whereas, the meeting on 14 December is addressed to scientists of the Faculty of Humanitiesthe Faculty of Social Sciences, the Faculty of Law and Administration, the Faculty of Theology, the Faculty of Arts and Educational Science and Krzysztof Kieślowski Film School. Nothing stands against if one prefers to take part on 14 December instead of 6 December
