» The promotion of young researchers
In the past, the Kolleg supported especially talented young scientists as part of doctoral schools in the fields of molecular biology and biochemistry. Overall, more than 20 particularly qualified PhD-students received doctoral scholarships. Excellent dissertations and many high-ranking publications resulted from this funding initiative. In 2012, the Alfried Krupp Kolleg initiated a new program, the so-called ”Junges Kolleg Greifswald”. It represents a unique facility, which gathers especially gifted students from Greifswald, who own competitive scholarships, predominantly from the German National Merit Foundation. Students of the “Junges Kolleg” are asked to perform scientific events of their own choice and individual format, thus actively participating in the academic life of the Kolleg.
During a World Cafe in December 2013, Professor Dr. Reinhard Merkel, Fellow of the academic year of 2013/2014, discussed the topic “the future of the economy and sustainability” with young fellows.
