    Participation in individual further qualifications

    Coaching, mentoring and further qualification will form a pillar in the portfolio of alumni support for former CZS grantees.

    As a former endowed professor of the Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung, I am interested in an alumni network. Such a network could support further communication, in-depth links among its members, and longer-term collaborations. In addition, the relationship to the Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung would be visible internally and externally over many years.

    In the spirit of a holistic approach, we would like to create more networking and event formats for current and former grantees as well as for scientific communities in the future.
