3rd German-Russian Young Researchers Forum

More '3rd German-Russian Young Researchers Forum'

Joint conference of the Leopoldina, the Junge Akademie, the Council of Young Scientists of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Совет молодых учёных Российской академии наук) and the Russian Academy of Sciences (Российская академия наук)

Date: Sunday, 21 to Friday, 26 July 2013
Location: “Haus Humboldtstein” Conference Centre, Am Humboldtstein, 53424 Remagen/Bonn

The German-Russian Young Researchers Forum was initiated within the “German-Russian Year of Education, Science and Innovation 2011/12”. The two previous editions took place in Moscow (2011) and Halle/Saale (2012), and brought together young scientists from Russia and Germany.

The forum offers a platform for dialogue, networking and interaction, covering a large spectrum of topics reaching from science, research, innovation to science-based advice, with common relevance for Germany, Russia and Europe. The forthcoming third forum takes places in Bonn-Remagen, Cologne and Jülich, in the frame of the strategic cooperation “Germany and Russia – Partnership of Ideas” as a follow-up action of the bilateral Year of Education, Science and Innovation 2011/2012. 

Based on the success of past editions, this year’s forum approaches three thematic clusters more closely:

  • Presentations and discussions on new, innovative research topics in an interdisciplinary perspective;
  • New opportunities for science-based advice on post-socialist transition and present transformation processes;
  • Exchange of experiences on science policy, in the context of international cooperation, innovation and technology transfer.

The concept comprises three thematic workshops and three high-profile panel discussions/science talks. They focus on the following main topics: (1) “Progress in Science and Challenges for Future Research”, (2) “Transition, Change, Cooperation” and (3) “Science Embeddedness”. The introductory keynote lecture by Professor Donald B. Dingwell, Secretary-General of the European Research Council, entitled “European Research Council: Making a Difference in Europe?” represents a first programme highlight. The participating researchers were selected following an open call for participation. Their background encompasses a broad subject area, from natural to social, engineering and medical science, sharing a distinctive multiplier potential in their academic environments.

Current issues and challenges concerning science policy and management, internationalisation and internationality, research cooperation and support, scientific excellency, etc. will be debated within distinctive panel discussions. The first panel will deal with “Internationalisation of Research and Higher Education”, followed by a second one at the University of Cologne, with the participation of its rector Professor Axel Freimuth, which focuses on “Instruments and Strategies of Science Policy and Research Support”. Subsequently, a practical programme content followed by a science talk with prominent panellists about “Science Applied: Infrastructures, Innovations, Incubators” will take place at the Forschungszentrum Jülich.

The added value of the participation consists of gaining an insight into the German, Russian and European science systems as well as into the instruments of international cooperation. It offers networking opportunities and mutual knowledge exchange on cross-subject topics.
