The TAC is an important part of your PhD. This regular evaluation by a team covering a variety of scientific expertise will help you to make the most out of your project.  The regular meetings aim to help your motivation, you to stay on track and to evaluate your data effectively.

This workshop covers TACs as they are done in the IMPRS from Molecules to Organisms and the Tübinger International PhD Program.
