Researchers need to “be in their heads” most of the time, they strive to avoid mistakes, and they are working on their careers in an academic environment that often highly competitive. The mindset of improvisation is quite the opposite: It stays in the moment without thinking ahead, it celebrates collaboration and it embraces mistakes.

They will be able to better deal with unpredictability both in research and in scientific presentations, to make contact more easily and to have more fun in building and maintaining their professional networks."
