In conjunction with Hannover’s business development enterprise hannoverimpuls and the ‘neuwärts’ agency, the REBIRTH Cluster of Excellence will be holding a new series of talks. The format is brief, with events featuring three speakers from the world of medicine. Each of them has 12 minutes to present their project, followed by 12 minutes for questions from the audience and then another 12 minutes of networking over a drink. The audience will be a good mix, from specialists to passers-by just dropping in. Events will be held on a roughly quarterly basis, with the chief aim of raising the general public’s scientific awareness.
