Partnering with DOSZ

The GiLE Foundation is excited to announce a new collaboration with the Association of Hungarian PhD and DLA Candidates (DOSZ). This collaboration presents an exciting opportunity for our non-profit organisation to support the next generation of researchers and help them achieve their goals.

We believe that this collaboration with the members of the DOSZ Ambassador System will provide a valuable platform for early-career researchers to receive support and mentorship from experienced academics and industry professionals in their respective fields.

With more than 20 years of experience in academia, I am familiar with the obstacles that PhD students and young researchers encounter. By partnering with DOSZ, I am confident that we can offer early-career researchers the necessary support and tools to thrive in their research and careers.

“Ad astra per aspera” 

The Latin quote – that means through hardship to the stars – captures the essence of the challenges faced by PhD students and early-career researchers. With a rigorous academic journey ahead of them, it can be daunting to navigate the obstacles and setbacks that often come with the pursuit of scientific knowledge. However, with the help and guidance of mentors, coaches, and trainers, young researchers can overcome these challenges. At the GiLE Foundation, we aim to support and empower them to achieve their goals and reach new heights. Through our collaboration with DOSZ, we are dedicated to fostering a vibrant and dynamic community of young researchers that will have a lasting impact on scientific research in Hungary and beyond.

Our first joint effort was a 90-minute training session during the DOSZ Ambassador Weekend program on February 11th-12th, 2023. This session was designed to provide valuable insights and tools for PhD student ambassadors to help them set and achieve their goals effectively. Hereby we thank Norbert Bencze, Vice President for Foreign Affairs and the Ambassador System (DOSZ) for the invitation, and Edit Sziráki Executive Coach and Advisor for the GiLE Journal of Skills Development for facilitating the engaging session.

But our collaboration with DOSZ is just getting started! 

I am personally enthusiastic about this collaboration and look forward to working with DOSZ to create exciting opportunities for young researchers. 

In addition to future training sessions, we are exploring the possibility of co-organising scientific conferences and various other events in Budapest, with the aim of building a strong international PhD community in Hungary. These events will also offer a platform for young people to share their research results in our scientific journal and at conferences, as well as share their ideas at other events such as the youth forum, enabling them to engage with other youth organizations, young changemakers, innovators, subject matter experts, entrepreneurs, and decision-makers. 

The beautiful thing about knowledge is that it can be shared and spread, and the more it is shared, the more it grows.” – Unknown author

At the GiLE Foundation, we believe in the power of collaboration and the importance of supporting the next generation of researchers. We are honoured to partner with DOSZ and are eager to see what exciting opportunities lie ahead.
