Building Bridges

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

We’ve set up an interactive workshop environment on the platform where you will use your personal avatar to …

  • listen to the invited talks and poster pitches in the keynote room;
  • visit the poster exhibition for in depth discussions with the authors;
  • join the speed dating event to get to know other local researchers;
  • meet colleagues in private spaces for small group discussions, e.g. at the bar or at the beach.

Register now if you would like to …

  • present your research as a poster;
  • get in touch with peers, build up your own network of experts;
  • learn from others, 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 research projects.
