Organised by the DFG, the "Research in Germany" initiative will be participating in this year’s congress of the European Society for Evolutionary Biology. The information booth, which will be open from Monday to Friday throughout the conference, offers a wide variety of information material to all ESEB conference participants interested in research stays or collaborations with Germany. Furthermore, there will be ample opportunity to talk to various renowned researchers working in Germany either at "Meet the Scientist" events (Monday through Thursday) or at the "Research in Germany" Science Lunch (Tuesday).

Come and visit the following "Research in Germany" information and networking events at the congress:

Information booth, August 21- 25, 2017. During exhibition hours (MartiniPlaza Conference Center, Booth 7)

Meet representatives of the German Research Foundation (DFG) as well as representatives of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH), the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Leibniz Research Alliance INFECTIONS`21 and the Volkswagen Foundation and get information on research and funding opportunities in Germany.
