Kick-Off Meeting

On 27 September 2021 we met for our official Kick-Off meeting. Not in person, unfortunately, but with subgroup discussions and an interactive poster session we were still able to get in contact with each other.

After a short introduction and the approval of formals, we talked about a common data management ground. Each project presented a poster in the following session and in the late afternoon the three Research Areas A/B/C met in order to plan collaborations  within the first year. After that we talked about how the individual projects come together in the central activities: synthesis of observational data and synthesis of modelling.

A total of about sixty people joined the meeting, among them about twenty new PhD students and Postdocs.

At least the avatars can sit down at a table together on the „Gather“ platform.

A journey begins

Today, 21.05.2021, we received the good news that this CRC will be funded by DFG for the next four years, starting on 01 July 2021. We are grateful for this opportunity and look forward to some exciting science to be explored. Stay tuned for updates here on this site!
