In context to the junior scientist support of the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) Nadja Ray, a project leader within the GRK „IntComSin“, was among the first who received the head of junior research group status at FAU. The press release is available here.


The research training group IntComSin came together in Ellwangen for this years annual meeting in October. Interesting talks about individual research results as well as further discussions on how to proceed with open questions were a strong core of a successful convention. The question and answer-session, where the candidates anonymously questioned the supervisors on every topic of academic life and life with academia, was received favorably by either sides. A four hour lasting hiking trip with great view of the local landscape rounded the conference from a collaborative point of view.

From September 30th to October 2nd the research training group IntComSin met for the second annual meeting at the historic monastery Weltenburg. Beside the exchange on current research areas and presentations of new findings, a lecture about “Do’s and don’ts in scientific publications” took place. The social highlight was a canoe trip on the river Danube from Neustadt a.d. Donau back to the monastery. In addition, the team spirit was strengthened by the evenings in relaxed atmosphere.
