Leibniz ScienceCampi Coordinators met last week
The Leibniz Association held a meeting for the coordinators of the 19 Leibniz ScienceCampi on the 29th of November in Berlin, as part of the Leibniz Association Annual Meeting 2017. The purpose of the meeting was to bring together the coordinators of the ScienceCampi from all over Germany and inform them about important recent developments in the Leibniz Association. The KCG was represented by Deputy Coordinator Cecilia Hornok.
Representatives of the Leibniz Association reported on the external evaluation of the ScienceCampus instrument by the Austrian Science Fund FWF and the subsequent recommendations of the Leibniz Senate. The ScienceCampus coordinators – after briefly introducing their campi’s activities in the past year – could take the opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues that are relevant for the future of their campi. Finally, the Communication Department of the Leibniz Association gave a presentation on their planned communication campaign in 2018 and discussed ideas with the ScienceCampi coordinators.
The KCG considers the dialogue with the Leibniz Association and the other ScienceCampi very important. In particular, the KCG cooperates with the other two Kiel-based ScienceCampi, KiSOC and EVOLung, on various issues, a recent example of which was a joint exhibition at the European Researchers’ Night.
