People: Young Researcher Network

The Young Researcher Network (YOURNET) was set up at the Center for Nanointegration at the University of Duisburg-Essen in summer 2010 to connect, on a professional level, excellent young researchers and support their future scientific career. The YOURNET meets every last Tuesday of the month in NETZ 0.03. Anyone interested is more than welcome to come along. For more details, please contact: Dr. Miriana Vadala (spokesperson), Phone: +49 201 183 4595 or M. Sc. Galina Marzun (spokesperson), Phone: +49 203 379 8116
