Cooperation in research plays an important part in academic work and on all levels of academic qualification. Coordinated programs such as collaborative research centers or clusters of excellence allow researchers to find new focuses across disciplines and to study innovative topics together. At Freie Universität, important fields of interest are additionally funded in Focus Areas: interdisciplinary research associations where questions of high relevance for the future are discussed and new research alliances initialized. All of these forms of cooperation bring together researchers of different disciplines, institutions and career stages and, in doing so, include junior researchers from early on. Junges Wissenschaftsforum Dahlem will present various perspectives taken from current research collaborations, ranging from spokesperson to coordinator, project leader, postdoc or doctoral student. The development, chances and challenges of coordinated projects will also be discussed.
The event will take place on December 2, 2014, from 5.15 to 8.30 pm at the Seminaris Campus Hotel. The event will be held in German and in English.
Junges Wissenschaftsforum Dahlem acts as a platform for the development and exchange of ideas. It is aimed at junior researchers at Freie Universität Berlin and its partners on the Berlin-Dahlem Research Campus.
The forum promotes networking among junior professors, heads of junior research groups, research assistants, postdocs, and advanced doctoral candidates by offering them opportunities to look beyond the boundaries of their respective disciplines and participate in shared activities.
