GTS

Chalmers strives to provide postgraduate education of the highest international standard. The work of doctoral students must be characterised by scientific depth, a broad social perspective and the ability to communicate research findings to the wider world. As part of its efforts to develop its postgraduate education provision, in 2012 Chalmers initiated educational initiatives to enhance young researchers’ generic skills. These activities are called Generic & Transferable Skills (GTS). 


In addition to a good research environment and subject-specific advanced courses, formal education is offered in communication, pedagogy, leadership, networking and utilisation. The interdisciplinary working groups and public-facing activities offer doctoral students opportunities to create new networks in which they can test, exercise and enhance their collaborative skills. The aim is to enhance the personal and professional skills that help researchers profile themselves on the labour market, take on complex societal challenges and contribute to a sustainable society.
