Building bridges across faculties and institutes


With the aim of “building bridges” across faculties and institutes we encourage early-career researchers to boost their careers through interdisciplinary exchange with their peers.

In this forthcoming workshop, we will offer

  • two scientific keynote presentations by invited MAPEX ECIs talking about their research: Dr. Cem Örnek (Leibniz-Institut für Werkstofforientierte Technologien - IWT); Dr. Camilla Tossi (ZARM - Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity)
  • a scientific speed dating session to foster scientific networking between ECR-peers from diverse disciplines


The workshop is a perfect platform for you if you would like to …

  • get in touch with ECR peers, build up your own network of experts,
  • learn from others from different disciplines and think outside the box,
  • open doors to other experts – become aware of the huge potential for mutual support that you can access on the short way,
  • develop ideas for cooperative and interdisciplinary research projects,
  • get to know how MAPEX can support your research and your scientific career path
  • learn more about how to provide good higher education teaching or how to benefit from training offersand make developmental progress in this important competence field.
