More than 150 million of third-party funds acquired, 2,000 publications, and 4,000 teaching hours per week per semester over one decade – the balance sheet of the about 155 active and former members of the Young Investigator Network (YIN) speaks for itself. On October 08, 2018, KIT’s YIN will celebrate its 10th anniversary under the auspices of Federal Minister for Research Anja Karliczek and Professor Holger Hanselka, President of KIT. The highlights will be a talk on particle networks in liquids and a panel discussion on changing career paths in science.
