The German city of Mannheim is proof that promoting music and creativity can have a positive impact on a city’s development – and thus has been awarded the title “City of Music” by UNESCO. What’s more, meet multi-award-winning cell and molecular biologist Chun So from Hong Kong who talks about his research at the Max Planck Society. Keen on funding opportunities? Apart from our current calls, the recently updated brochure “Funding your research in Germany” is available now. Last but not least, don’t miss out on our upcoming events. We look forward to (virtually) seeing you!
