KCG Coordinator Joined the Annual Leibniz Coordinator Meeting
KCG Coordinator, Dr. Wan-Hsin Liu, joined the annual Leibniz Meeting of ScienceCampi Coordinators which took place on November 27, 2018 in Berlin. Participating in this meeting enabled the coordinators not only to receive up-to-date and direct information from the Leibniz Association, which is relevant for the general development of the ScienceCampi, but also to exchange knowledge and lessons with other coordinators of the about 19 Leibniz ScienceCampi. The discussions at the meeting this time focused on three core topics. First, it focused on exploring how Leibniz ScienceCampi can help foster scientific cooperation between universities and the Leibniz research institutes and how such cooperation can be better measured. Second, it focused on discussing how the financial sustainability of the Leibniz ScienceCampi can be better realized, for example, through applying for further funding from the Leibniz Association for the individual Campi. Third, it focused on learning more about the new communication campaign of the Leibniz Association that aims at increasing the visibility of the Leibniz Association among, particularly, different stakeholders and the public in the German-speaking area.
Dr. Mirjam Sophia Gleßmer and Dr. Christiane Gerlach, Coordinators of the other two Kiel Leibniz ScienceCampi (KiSOC and EvoLUNG) also joined the meeting. Thus, the meeting also provided a great opportunity for the Kiel coordinators to continue their discussions about how to further strengthen their cooperation with each other on the one hand and with the Kiel University on the other hand.
