Coworking at CERes

As a place where people meet, CERes promotes networking and cooperation among emerging researchers. Our physical and virtual rooms are open to doctoral researchers and postdocs for mutual exchange, coworking with like-minded peers, or quiet work. Our trainers cultivate a stimulating, supportive and productive atmosphere where you can relax and concentrate on writing, work on your projects, and meet peers from many different faculties.

Writing together helps!

Did you know that taking part in writing groups can reduce stress and anxiety in doctoral researchers which arise in connection with writing a dissertation (e.g. Buckley et al. 2021)? Or that writing groups can promote interdisciplinary learning among doctoral researchers (e.g. Bergen et al. 2020)? As far as university teachers are concerned (including postdocs), taking part in an academic writing group can help to increase productivity as regards writing manuscripts and publications (e.g. Kwan et al. 2021). Join our writing community and let us celebrate your successes together!

Having a “place” to come to, knowing that I have blocked it in my calendar, that there are others that also want to write and that I can work on my draft. Basically, to get into the habit of setting aside time specifically for writing.
