The extended “Research in Germany” booth 2015

Largest Ever “Research in Germany” Booth at AGU 2015 in San Francisco

(22.12.15) The annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union achieved another visitor record with around 24,000 international participants. At the same time, the booth of the “Research in Germany” initiative set a new record of its own. Organised by the DFG, the joint booth presented not only the three clusters of excellence in the geosciences (CliSAP, MARUM, The Future Ocean) and the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) but also for the first time Priority Programmes, Collaborative Research Centres and Research Training Groups. Combined with daily lunch talks, a Career Café, a DFG Leibniz Lecture and a German Social, it was an excellent opportunity to learn about the geosciences research landscape in Germany.
