The UWGS and the Rudolf Virchow Center jointly celebrated their respective 10 year and 15 year anniversaries on 14 October 2016
Of special interest to young researchers was the afternoon session in which doctoral researchers and junio group leaders asked representatives of the science committee of the Bavarian parliament, of the university and of other stakeholders regarding the future perspectives of and in research.
Some specific questions led to subsequent meetings with the university board for further clarification. The discussion of some broader issues such as further improving the co-operation of universities with non-university research organisations or the support of spin-off companies proved to be valuable input for the politicians which will find its way into further decision making processes.
