The Nobel Prize winner Professor Dr. Dr. h. c. Rolf Martin Zinkernagel held the 3rd Loeffler-Lecture in June 2014, which was certainly a highlight event.
The young research fellows have the opportunity to persue research topics of their own choice. This occurs at an early stage of their academic career and enables them inviting experts to address interdisciplinary issues such as the relationship between science and society. The students are free to approach their own strategies for the events. They gain support from a mentor from the scientific advisory board, visitors, fellows and the staff of the Kolleg. The “Junges Kolleg” initiative, which is focused on the promotion of young particularly talented students, is expected to enhance also the education of graduates at the university. The series “Thinking about Science” for example, including lectures and seminars that treat ethical and philosophcal issues, is predominantly addressed to the doctoral students of the university graduate academy.
