Advisory Board Report

‍On February 7th, the Advisory Board met with our ReForm members. For more than two hours, we answered questions about the Leibniz Science Campus ReForm. We are happy about the constructive questions and suggestions and of course most of all about the very positive feedback.

We thank our advisory board members Edmund Chattoe-Brown, Timothy LeCain, Mark Pearce, Roland Schwab, Marie-Louise Bech-Nosch and Ute Wardenga for their time and commitment!


The podcast “10 minutes with…” asked our guests to introduce themselves and their projects. We recorded these short podcasts together with the science blog unterIrdisch.

You can listen to the latest podcast episodes with Estrid Sørensen and Stefan Laser, Roland Hardenberg, Christian Wendt, Nicolai Grube and Stefan Möllerherm.
