Transferable skills

Completing a PhD in time with a high-quality thesis is a major challenge that requires many other skills than strictly scientific and technical qualifications. Writing and communicating results effectively, working as a team, knowing what to do in case of conflict, managing a project and its timeline, interacting with promoters ... are examples of valuable skills that PhD students need to acquire. An additional reason for mastering these so-called "soft skills" is that they are transferable, and highly valued, also outside the academic world (transferable skills).
