Graduate School Science, Medicine and Technology

The aims of the Graduate School OLTECH are to train PhD candidates in an international and interdisciplinary context. They learn to develop inventive research questions and new approaches to solving problems, to plan and manage projects and to present the results of their studies. The early-career researchers learn about the relevant models and hypotheses in their field of science and can practise discussing them.

The curriculum combines several disciplines ensuring that the doctoral researchers are able to integrate their scientific skills into a broader context. All curriculum elements serve to enhance the scientific independence and creativity of the PhD students.

scientific practice, questionable research practice and scientific misconduct. They will learn
how misconduct can be recognized and prevented, and how it should be addressed and
dealt with in case it occurs, and what damage it can cause if handled improperly. The
participants will learn to develop appropriate solutions for difficult situations in the process
of science and receive advice on how to protect their scientific work. They are encouraged
to speak with colleagues and the appropriate institutions about mistakes and problems.
The content of the workshop follows the curriculum “Good scientific practice” which was
commissioned by and developed in cooperation with the German Research Ombudsman:

  • Definitions of good scientific practice and scientific misconduct
  • Examples for responsible and irresponsible conduct of research

  • Supervision as tools for fostering good scientific practice, mentoring
  • Conflict management: how to deal with scientific misconduct
  • Ombudssystem
