Alumni Projects by AlumNode members

From Interactive E-Learning to a STEM-Conference for Students


The first round of "Fund Your Project" for our alumni ended in September 2020. Our alumni have organized amazing projects based on their research fields or even beyond, reaching from workshops on "Mental Health in Academia" to the succsesful development of a device that tracks animals for farmers.

With the generous support of the Klaus Tschira Stiftung gGmbH and the Max Planck Society we were able to fund the first six (mainly interdisciplinary) projects of our alumni in the following categories:

  • Leadership & Career Development
  • Projects & Collaborations
  • Advocacy & Science Communication

Find out more about the projects in the column on the right.
