The introductory morning aims to encourage participants to discuss and reflect on their own experiences as young researchers, and about the broader social, political and economic context of research. The first thematic session focuses on raising awareness for mental health, especially in regard to the current context and the ongoing pandemic. The following session focuses on knowledge production. The third session centres on a hands-on approach to tackling issues revolving around labour at the university, and what specific actions are undertaken within universities to improve people’s working conditions. During the afternoon of that day, participants will be encouraged to use the critical insights gained in the previous sessions to come up with concrete actions. The last session provides the opportunity to reflect on the whole of the course.
