GloSYS Report released

We are proud to release the report on our BMBF-funded project "Global State of Young Scientists" (GloSYS). The study, authored by Catherine Beaudry (Canada) and Irene Friesenhahn (Germany), explored the concerns and opportunities for career development of young researchers. The project team collected 650 survey responses and 45 interviews with participants from all five world regions. The central findings of the precursor project and the resulting recommendations from GloSYS can serve as a basis to improve the state of young researchers throughout the world.
