June 2021

In Germany, the first consortia to build a National Research Data Infrastructure only recently have started their work – and are to receive substantial public funding over the next years in order to create a knowledge repository for the entire research landscape. Rather looking for individual funding options? As usual, you will find current calls and career advice for international researchers in our June issue, too. Besides, we introduce Polish researcher Piotr Baszynski who works towards greater sustainability in architecture. And of course, we are still happy to meet you at our events – at least virtually. Enjoy!
