Project extension until the end of 2021

26. November 2020

Extension of program and additional funding for Bayreuth-Melbourne Colloid/Polymer Network

Time to celebrate!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent comprehensive travel restrictions many of the measures planned for 2020 could not be carried out: Research visits had to be cancelled or postponed indefinitely. Conferences were held digitally or in some cases postponed - even until the year after next. Our intended closing event with workshops and a large networking meeting could not take place either.

We are pleased to announce that our Bayreuth-Melbourne Colloid/Polymer Network does not have to end quietly without further ado. The DAAD has finally approved our application and extended our project until the end of 2021. For the coming year we were granted an additional funding of € 50,000 out of our unspent budget in 2020. These means are to be spent preferably on activities that were already planned for 2020 but could not be implemented. In view of our plan of measures and milestones, the focus here is primarily on the research stays of our Joint PhD candidates and the Bayreuth International Summer School (BISS).

We are looking forward to another year of cooperation and hope that conditions will improve to such an extent that face-to-face meetings will be possible again as of the coming summer semester.
