Nachwuchstalente treffen Humboldt-Preisträgerinnen und -Preisträger an der LUH

LUH brings together talented young researchers and award winners of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation

From 12 to 14 June 2022, the networking event Humboldt meets Leibniz will be held for the first time

Will the twenty-first century be shaped by optics? From 12 to 14 June 2022, researchers will discuss this and other issues in an interdisciplinary and intergenerational context in Hannover. Initiated by Leibniz University Hannover, the new networking event will be held every two years focusing on a different topic each time. Under the slogan "Connecting Talents Across Generations", the event brings together Alexander von Humboldt award winners and young researchers from Germany and abroad. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the first edition of the event originally scheduled to take place in autumn 2020 had to be rescheduled and will now be held in June 2022.

The programme encourages interaction and includes scientific forums as well as opportunities for sharing experiences, networking and discussing topics relevant to career development. The event in 2022 will address current research questions in optics and photonics. To date, 14 Humboldt award winners from the United States, Australia, France and South Africa are expected to attend.

Young researchers from Leibniz University Hannover as well as other universities or research facilities in Germany and abroad may apply to participate until 1 November 2021.
