What did KoWi's "Research in Europe" offer?

The all-day information and networking event "Research in Europe" addressed advanced Master’s students, doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers and multipliers. It provided a compact overview of current research funding opportunities at national and European level. Various renowned research and funding organisations presented their programs and institutions on site and provided tips for successful applications and proposals. All speakers were available for questions the whole day and thus covered the high demand for information on individual career planning in research.
