Research Academy Ruhr on the Move!
Last week, Research Academy Ruhr was part of the European Career Fair at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA, USA. Dr. Christiane Wüllner and Dr. Jörn Benzinger (RUB) joined the booth of University Alliance Ruhr and had the chance to introduce Research Academy Ruhr to many promising early researchers from the nearby Ivy League universities.
As a part of the Research in Germany delegation, they also gladly accepted an invitation to a GAIN network event which brought together German early researchers currently working in Boston and surroundings. They also took the chance to introduce interested international scholars to the German academic system and its funding opportunities during an information session.
The visit of the European Career Fair was preceded by meetings with Peter Rosenbaum at the UA Ruhr Office New York as well as with representatives of the Graduate Center CUNY in New York and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. These very promising appointments have opened doors for the future exchange of early career researchers and many new ideas were born. Stay tuned!
