Researchers at the Max Planck Institut für Kohlenforscher build bridges to promote   
exchange between Germany and Spain

Cerfa (Científicos Españoles en la República Federal de Alemania) is an association that has taken on the task of networking in both the Spanish and German research. The nonprofit organization is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service and by Spanish institutions and counts around 430 active members in Germany.
  For the very first time Cerfa now organizes a symposium in North Rhine-Westphalia. "We want to present Cerfa to scientists here in NRW," says Dr. Daniel Escudero Masa, scientist at the Max Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung and Cerfa member. "The topics of our first symposium are widespread – from general scientific talks to research policy and internationalization,” says the young researcher. 
  Daniel Escudero Masa thinks that networking is important to promote changes in the Spanish Research and Development system by bringing back experience with the consolidated system in Germany. “In addition, such an organization could help international researchers to overcome hurdles in the German research system,” he says.
  The symposium will take place at the University of Cologne, Neuer Senatssaal, Albertus-Magnus-Platz, on Friday, March 28th. If you like to register please visit the website.
