The CRC 951 - Hybrid Inorganic/Organic Systems for Opto-Electronics (HIOS) - is an interdisciplinary effort bringing together scientists with complementary expertise from four universities and two non-university institutions. The goal is the merger of inorganic semiconductors, conjugated organic materials, and metal nanostructures into novel hybrid structures. Elucidating and tailoring the fundamental chemical, electronic, and photonic interactions in these systems will enable us the development of functional elements exhibiting superior opto-electronic functionalities not achievable with any of the individual material classes alone. The CRC 951 was founded in July 2011 and is currently in its third funding period (2019-2023).

From Competition to Co-Creation - How to Improve Collaboration in Science

28.10.2020 - 09:00-12:00
30.10.2020 - 09:00-12:00

In the scientific community, cooperation is increasingly expected for third-party funding applications, but in reality many people report a predominantly competitive atmosphere with their colleagues, which affects their daily work. In this seminar we will discuss ways to deal with this contradiction and find ways to make collaboration more fruitful and easier.
