Postdoc Appreciation Week

Montag, 28. August 2023 um 10:31 Uhr

A total of 63 institutions are involved with 126 events in 26 cities!

Inspired by the celebration of the Postdoc Appreciation Week in the USA and the UK, the PAW Germany coordination team invited researchers and research institutions, postdoc coordinators and research administrators all over Germany to join us in creating a special program, events and a social media campaign to honor the incredible work of postdocs! The initiative was well taken and our colleagues and postdoc networks all over the country quickly put together a great program with a wide range of topics – most of them online and open for attendees from any institution in Germany.

The University Library and the Graduate Center of the University of Hildesheim open the "Publication Week" for the PAW!

The program with all Germany-wide events has been published. Check out Twitter @PAW_Germany and use the #PAWde.
