Current edition

In the first issue of 2023, you can expect the following topics, among others:

  • Support through Mentoring: Especially at the beginning of their scientific careers, researchers face many questions that others have also asked themselves at some point. HAI research mentoring enables network members to link up so that mentees can benefit from the expertise of experienced mentors.
  • Research Training Group on Enmity: “Ambivalent Enmity” is the topic of a new Research Training Group at Heidelberg University based in the humanities and social sciences.
  • Looking into the early Universe: With the aid of the James Webb Space Telescope an international researcher team under Heidelberg leadership has discovered a cluster of galaxies and, at the same time, one of the densest known areas of galaxy formation in the early Universe.
  • More Visibility for innovative Women: The visibility of innovative work by women in science is the focus of a research project led by the economist Christiane Schwieren.
  • „I lost my heart in Heidelberg“: Dr Vivianne Geraldes Ferreira (Law, Brazil) and Prof. Dr Marcin Moskalewicz (Philosophy, Heidelberg).
