The German-Russian Young Researchers Forum is a high-level bilateral initiative originating from the German-Russian Year of Education, Science and Innovation 2011/12. The three previous forums took place in Moscow (2011), Halle/Saale & Berlin (2012), Bonn, Cologne & Jülich (2013), and brought together outstanding young scientists from Russia and Germany.
