Fifth Coordinator Meeting in Kiel
On August 6, 2018 the fifth Coordinator Meeting of the three Leibniz ScienceCampi in Kiel took place at the Kiel Institute for the World Economy. Dr. Mirjam S. Gleßmer and Dr. Gun-Brit Thoma from the Kiel Science Outreach Campus (KiSOC) and Dr. Wan-Hsin Liu from the Kiel Centre for Globalization (KCG) participated in the meeting. Dr. Christiane Gerlach from the Evolutionary Medicine of the Lung (EvoLung) joined the discussion via a conference call.
The meeting aimed at exploring potential ways to foster interactions and exchange among the three ScienceCampi. In addition to joint public events such as the European Researchers’ Night in 2017, where the three Campi had their first joint poster presentations, the coordinators also discussed about the possibility of organizing joint workshops for Campi members, particularly for PhD researchers, to provide them with further training opportunities and to support their academic career development.
Regular coordinator meetings in Kiel are expected to encourage the local and regional scientific cooperation among the three Campi and thus help achieve one of the main goals set by the Leibniz Association for its ScienceCampi.
