How to participate

How to participate in the PAW?
The Postdoc Appreciation Week is a celebratory week that gives us an opportunity to: Provide attention, visibility and support for postdocs | Support & highlight existing Postdoc Networks & Services | Better connect with each other | Integrate international postdocs. There are different ways you can participate, check the icons below to find out how.

You would like to host/organise an event for postdocs during paw and make it available to other postdocs in Germany? Scroll down for more information or click on the icon to go to our 'template for events' form. Once we receive all the relevant details about your event(s), we will include it in our event program and advertise it through our social media channels during the PAW.

Join the social media campaign and tag us (#PAWde). Create posts either sharing your experiences or your work as a postdoc in Germany. If you are joining the social media campaign on behalf of a institution, then mention how your institution is supporting postdocs or acknowledge their contributions.
