For the second year in a row, WASCAL graduate students from the diverse WASCAL Graduate Schools in West Africa joined the workshop “Intercultural Competence – Communications with the German Research Landscape”. This workshop was provided virtually by colleagues from the project WASCAL-DE-Coop at the Department of Remote Sensing. Various topics, such as the responsibility of a supervisor, scientific expectations as well as the preparation of online meetings, were addressed. More than 80 students joined the workshop provided in English and French language. Our WASCAL graduate students conduct climate change research on different topics, such as agriculture, human habitats, energy, and biodiversity science amongst others.
The workshop was led by Sabine Oppmann and Dr. Sarah Schönbrodt-Stitt.
