  • Efficiently organizing a research project;
  • Time management;
  • Improving reading speed and efficiency;
  • Quickly identifying and understanding relevant information in a scientific text;
  • Memorizing and summarizing key information;
  • Increasing the scientific vocabulary.


Preparing a research project such as a PhD means managing a large quantity of information. You cannot read every thing: you must sort out information. You need to understand and to retain complex contents. You have to reflect on your readings in order to integrate them in a coherent knowledge structure. Reading scientific literature can be motivating and empower your self-confidence if you know efficient reading techniques. This workshop offers ways to get effective working habits from the beginning. It is project-based: you will work on your own research project. Please bring scientific literature you want to read.
