Brochure on the Week of the Young Researcher at MIPT on “Discrete Geometry”
(16.03.16) In early September 2015 the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) organised the fifth German-Russian Week of the Young Researcher under the umbrella of the German House for Research and Innovation (DWIH Moscow). Over 50 doctoral and postdoctoral researchers and professors from both countries, including DFG Vice President Peter Funke and DFG Senator Professor Günter M. Ziegler (FU Berlin), spent a week discussing the topic of discrete geometry at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT). The brochure can be downloaded from the DFG website.
The first “Week of the Young Researcher” took place in 2011 at the Federal University of Kazan on the topic of “Man and Energy”, with a second in 2012 at the Federal University of Yekaterinburg which took as its theme the subject of “Health and Society”. This was followed by the third Week of the Young Researcher in 2013 on the subject of “Aviation and Space” in Novosibirsk and a week on “Global History” in St. Petersburg in 2014. The Young Researcher Weeks were set up as an initiative of the DAAD and DFG as part of the German-Russian Year of Science, Education and Innovation. Held once each year at changing locations in Russia, they aim to address current issues through international cooperation.
