DFG Office North America: New York City and Washington DC
The United States and Canada hold a special position in the context of the increasing internationalization of German research. The North America Office facilitates contact between scientists and researchers in Germany and North America, supports early-career researchers on a DFG fellowship in the region, and organizes outreach activities to showcase German research in the region.
For the first time, the “Research in Germany” initiative presented the German research landscape to the international community in the field of artificial intelligence at this year’s virtual NeurIPS conference with a virtual information booth and an online seminar. Interner Linkmore
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual meeting of GAIN was held virtually for the first time to foster the dialogue between postdocs, early career researchers, and the international science community as well as German research institutions, research funders, and science policy-makers.
