Science Breakfast

Begin of page section: Contents:

On the first Wednesday of every month (during the lecture term), BioTechMed-Graz organizes a Science Breakfast alternately at the University of Graz, Medical University of Graz, and Graz University of Technology.


Next Event:

The next BioTechMed-Graz Science Breakfast will take place on December 7th, 2022.

Prof. Aljoscha NeubauerFull Professor for Differential Psychology at the University of Graz and former President of Austrian Society of Psychology, will give a talk on "I spy with my little eye... What I think I know about my abilities and competencies – but do others know them better?".

The insight into one’s own abilities and competencies can – for some domains - be surprisingly inaccurate; some people overestimate themselves, others tend to underestimation. Acquainted persons (peers, teachers, parents, friends) have - in some domains - an even more accurate view on one’s own talents. A biased self-view might lead to the development of misguided professional interests and this has implications for career choice and career counseling, which will also be discussed in Prof. Neubauers presentation.

 You can register here until December 5th, 2022.
