Student Symposium

The annual undefinedCLIB-GC student symposium was successfully established in 2010 as a perfect platform for a get-together of interested students and audience from different backgrounds with renowned scientists from academia and industry. Ever since this symposium was organized by associated students of Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. Within the framework of this symposium representatives from all three groups (students, renowned scientists, industry) give insights into their work and provide a base for inspiring discussions. Since 2013 the symposium became a joint venture of CLIB graduate cluster and the undefinediGRASPseed graduate school of Heinrich Heine University.
