GESS Anniversary Symposium

Last week we were celebrating the 10-Year Anniversary of the GESS together with our Alumni Homecoming. Check out the photos of our 2-day event.

It was a great pleasure to have so many Alumni back at the University of Mannheim. We were also happy to welcome Professor Isabel Gil, Rector of the Catholic University of Portugal, who was the keynote speaker of our symposium on “Science and Society”.

In particular we want to say a big THANK YOU to some people who made this event a special one:

Our Alumni Prof. Dr. Thomas Meyer, Dr. Fabienne Rasel, Prof. Dr. Esad Smajlbegovic and Prof. Dr. Carolina Küpper-Tetzel who held speeches about their research in the context of society as well as career workshops for our doctoral students.

Our doctoral students Albrecht Bohne, Torben Fischer and Konstantin Gavras who presented their voluntary work projects.

Our Alumni Prof. Dr. Heike Klüver, Dr. Christopher Fink, Dr. Robert Poppe and Prof. Dr. Benjamin Hilbig who shared their experience during career workshops for our doctoral students.
