Docs go TEDx

The first TEDxKielUniversity conference in 2015 was organized by doctoral candidates and students. During a course they learned key competences of project work which they where able to apply during the organization of the conference. Moreover, these  yearly TEDxKielUniversity conferences give doctoral candidates and students the possibility to promote Kiel University’s international profile.

The focus of the project included amongst others:

  • Project management
  • Volunteer management
  • Public relations (offline)
  • Social Media
  • Finances and Sponsoring
  • Speakers assistance
  • Event organisation


The Graduate Center offers for doctoral candidates a training program for the above-named areas, including a mentoring program, beginning in October 2016. It concentrates on the practical application of those skills within the context of the organization of the TEDxKielUniversity conference 2017.
