Photonics and physics alumni workshop 2014

The Abbe Center of Photonics and the Friedrich Schiller University cordially invites to our first research alumni workshop. The workshop will take 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 multipliers who can inform junior researchers in their specialist networks about the opportunities and potential for future career options in Germany or abroad. At the workshop, we are proud to welcome a distinct number of highly distinguished research alumni of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy and from the Abbe School of Photonics who will share their perspectives on science and industry with us. The workshop is part of an initiative on Research Alumni Strategies, supported by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research under its brand "Research in Germany". Please see the workshop program and the flyer for further details.
