Soft Skill Workshop Attendance Sheet

Candidates at the Faculty of Biology (Dr. rer. nat.) have to attend a minimum of 3 workshops in 3 years. Candidates at the Faculty of Medicine should attend a minimum of 2 workshops during the BIOME year.

Workshops organised by BIOME have an attendance list which should be signed and then the participation is noted in the BIOME data bank. Attendance at non-BIOME workshops can be noted on and countersigned by the trainer on the Workshop Attendance Sheet which can be downloaded below or can be proved by the submission of a certificate issued by the hosting organisation.

The soft skill requirement is waivered for ELAN candidates (who receive similar training in modules 1, 3 and 4 of the ELAN programme). Similarly, participation in the intensive one-year DiMento programme fulfils the BIOME soft skill requirement entirely. Nevertheless, these members are welcome to register for any workshops of interest they may wish to attend.
