Galaxy Evolution Across Cosmic Time

WE Heraeus-EAS Early Career Researchers in Astronomy Workshop

27 Feb - 03 Mar 2023


Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Garching

Scientific organizers:

Prof. Dr. Andreas Burkert, LMU München • Prof. Dr. Matthias Steinmetz, AIP Potsdam

The HERA workshops (WE Heraeus-EAS Early Career Researchers in Astronomy) is a new initiative started by the European Astronomical Society (EAS) and funded by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus foundation. This workshop series will provide an environment where early career scientists are trained to interact, design research projects, develop a broad perspective and start international collaborations.

The first workshop in this series will be organized by the ORIGINS cluster of excellence. The EAS invites early-career European scientists (less than 5 years after their PhD), working in the field of galaxy evolution to apply for the workshop. 

The participants will achieve plenty of time to present their research, start collaborations with local scientists and the 5 invited senior review speakers and visit the Munich/Garching science centers, including the ORIGINS facilities, the Max-Planck-Institutes for Astrophysics and Extraterrestrial Physics, the European Southern Observatory and its Supernova Planetarium, the University of Munich and the Technical University as well as the Wendelstein Observatory in the Bavarian Alps. There is no registration fee and the WE Heraeus Foundation will reimburse the local expenses of all participants.
