What is the current status in the working groups? Which topics should we cover? Who would like to get involved? How can we push forward the work of the network?
The network aims to address these questions specifically for the working groups in the “Zukunftsworkshop” (or Future Workshop) which took place at the Leibniz Association’s Head Office in Berlin on May 6th and 7th. For this event, everyone who is active in the Leibniz PhD Network by participating in a working group or wants to join a group gathers in order to discuss accomplished work and future plans. Scattered all over Germany, opportunities for working group members to meet in person are rare and most communication has to be done via Skype conferences and email. Getting together for the Zukunftsworkshop is therefore a welcome change.
