This second annual workshop aims to gather junior group leaders in the fields of chemistry, physics, and astronomy; their academic administrative leaders at German universities; experts in educational exchange from the Fulbright Kommission; and the Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA) for a unique opportunity to further professional development.
The workshop offers training for junior group leaders in Germany on how to best implement evidence-based pedagogies, integrate research and teaching, use new strategies for communicating science to the public, and develop skills in time management, leadership, mentoring students, and networking. The workshop also engages the academic administrative leaders in Germany in a dialogue on how to leverage professional development for future academic leaders and increase the university's impact on society.
The workshop has the following objectives:
This workshop is a continuation of the "Bridges to Germany" Workshop, which was held in May 2017 in Mainz as part of the Cottrell Scholar Collaborative.

This workshop is sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Fulbright Commission, which administers the annual Fulbright-Cottrell Award in collaboration with the American Research Corporation for Science Advancement.
