This workshop was part of an initiative on Research Alumni Strategies, supported by the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation. At the workshop, we were proud to welcome a number of highly distinguished research alumni of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy and of the Abbe School of Photonics to shared their perspectives on science and industry with us. The workshop took place on
Wednesday, 26th November 2014 at 9 a.m.
at the lecture hall of the Abbe-Zentrum Beutenberg, Hans-Knöll-Straße 1, Jena.
Research alumni are international scientists and scholars, who have spent time working or teaching in Germany as doctoral candidates, post-doctoral researchers, or at more advanced career stages. They are ideal key networkers, who can inform junior researchers in their specialist communities about the opportunities and potentials for future career options in Germany or abroad. The workshop is part of an initiative on Research Alumni Strategies, supported by the Alexander von Humboldt FoundationExternal link and the Federal Ministry of Education and ResearchExternal link under the brand "Research in GermanyExternal link".
