Its focus lies on the communication and exchange of information of young researchers’ present scientific projects and working environments. Besides an excellent opportunity to practice and improve one’s skills, it finds its larger scope in (interdisciplinary) exchange and the valuable chance to initiate cooperative development of innovative technologies.
