Review Young Researchers Day 2020

The Young Researchers Day 2020, which took place in virtual form on October 7, 2020, exceeded all expectations with over 100 registrations!

In lectures and discussions young researchers of the KU were able to inform themselves about various topics. A workshop on the topic "Habilitation, Habilitation procedure and Habilitation equivalence" for postdoctoral researchers also attracted numerous participants. Many colleagues from the administrative, teaching and research departments were available for information and advice.

Another highlight of the day was the film competition "90Seconds", which took place for the second time. Young scientists were invited to present their research topic in a short film. Benedikt Winkel, liturgy scholar, was able to convince the audience with his presentation in the live vote.
