Applying research skills in interdisciplinary projects

Résumé de la formation

This 4 half-day workshop is designed to show you the impact you can have on the world by using and further developing your research skills. As a PhD candidate, you will spend the next years deeply exploring a given scientific field, but in the same time you will be unconsciously working on the research skills highly valued in research-related jobs, and far beyond those.

Starting your PhD is the right time to become aware of your current level, so you can understand which skills you can start using immediately to help your research team, as well as which skills would need some more training before you finish your PhD.

The workshop consists of highly interactive team-based activities, where you will get to know yourself and your colleagues better, and explore the power of collaborative interdisciplinary work.

Make sure you are fully ready for this unique immersive experience, of what it means to be a researcher working on crucial and complex problems in interdisciplinary international teams, and how to maximise the impact of your PhD training to help you succeed in your careers in France or abroad.


  • 1st session – team formation, creativity exercises, and introduction to research skills
  • 2nd session – presentation of the global problem, R&D of the solution in teams
  • 3rd session – presentation of the initial solution, continuation of team work to complete the proposal
  • 4th session – preparation of the presentation with solutions, peer evaluations, self-reflection on skills development

Formateurs et formatrices

Tamara Milosevic, Ph.D.

Tamara Milosevic is an alumna of University of Paris and an independent consultant for innovative pedagogy in higher education.
After her Ph.D. in interdisciplinary life sciences, she started designing experimental project-based learning programs and courses for bachelor, master and doctoral students.

Besides teaching in higher education institutions since 2012 and focusing on increasing the essential career skills for her students, she is creating educational programs to increase the scientific literacy skills of adult learners in the Rhizome Association she co-founded in 2018.

Her approach is based on peer-2-peer interactions and personalised learning to help each learner develop a multitude of skills rapidly through experiential learning (learning by doing).
She believes it’s never too early for Ph.D. candidates to start communicating about their research to a wider interdisciplinary audience, discovering other fields of research, and effectively transferring their passion for knowledge to the general public.
