Dear {NAME[std:Reader]},

In this issue, we proudly present the launch of the new "Research in Germany" spotlight on the topic of global health! And to stay on the subject of health: have a look at the new WHO Hub for Pandemic and Epidemic Intelligence recently inaugurated in Berlin. Apart from this, we talked to a computer scientist from Saudi Arabia at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics in Bonn in our "People" section this month, and took a look at a useful interactive map. And last but not least, don't forget to check out our current calls and upcoming events!
