Intercultural Assistant Tool

A new culture is a new experience. This tool is designed to help you adapt and integrate in a new cultural environment, when you have moved or are planning to move to a foreign country. Test and develop your intercultural competence and learn how to become a part of a new community, while reaching your research goals and making the best out of your new job.





Talent Development Suite

The Talent Development Suite (TDS) is a tool to assist postdocs with personal career development planning. Unlike other existing career support tools, it does not evaluate researchers' skills and abilities, but focuses on a researcher's vision.

The TDS is structured into four different assessment sections called "Future", "Present", "Past" and "Personal Journey Map". Please remember that the TDS is not only about your professional life, but also about your private life.
