Monthly Seminars of the iRTG-ParSciTech commence in hybrid format
Regular seminars to present and discuss progress in CRC 1411 research are an essential measure to maintain the quality control of projects and to provide support and mentoring for the young researchers involved. Therefore, the integrated Research Training Group in Particle Science and Technology (iRTG-ParSciTech) has established a monthly seminar series. Originally this was planned to begin after the CRC Kick-off meeting in March 2020. However, due to the upheavals at the participating institutions resulting from the COVID-19 crisis, the start was delayed to July 2020. At each seminar at least two iRTG-ParSciTech members give a presentation of their project objectives, latest results and open questions. To enable as much engagement and discussion as possible, a hybrid format was chosen. Here, up to 23 researchers could meet in a large lecture room, with the remainder joining via Zoom. The presentations are recorded and can be viewed at the CRC StudON page. The first two seminars, in July and August, featured talks from projects A01, A03, D01 and D05. Following a break in September due to many colleagues being on summer vacation, the monthly seminar series will return in October. The timetable will be published here.
