May 11, 2021 | CIDER Spring Workshop 2021

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s CIDER Spring Workshop 2021 had to take place virtually. Nevertheless, the CIDER Coordination and the organization team at LIfBi in Bamberg created an interesting and varied program. In addition to presentations by the CIDER Fellows and three keynote lectures, round table discussions on the topic “what matters when applying for a professorship” with former CIDER Fellows were offered. At a very convivial virtual social event, the Fellows had the opportunity to get to know each other better despite the physical distance by taking part in a photo quiz and enjoying an original Bamberg smoked beer sent to them in advance. Now everyone hopes to finally meet again face to face in Berlin at the CIDER LERN Conference in fall 2021!

Have a look at the program here.

July 24, 2020 | Extension of CIDER III until December 2023

Due to the Corona-crisis in Europe, the CIDER Spring Workshop at the DIPF and the LERN-CIDER conference at the University of Luxembourg could not take place as planned respectively had to be cancelled (see below). These actions comprised the fellows’ exchange, which is vital for building interdisciplinary collaborations. Thus, the Steering Committee, the LERN-Network, and the Jacobs Foundation decided to extend the duration of the third CIDER cohort for a year. Moreover, the CIDER III event schedule was updated. The CIDER Spring workshop at the DIPF and the LERN-CIDER conference at the University of Luxembourg are postponed and will take place in 2022.

October 15, 2019 | The third cohort of CIDER just started!

Due to the great support of the Leibniz Education Research Network (LERN), the Jacobs Foundation, and the ten supporting Leibniz institutes, we are happy to announce the third cohort of CIDER!

The third cohort started with the CIDER III Kick-off Workshop at the IPN in Kiel (October 15-17, 2019). The workshop`s main goal was to introduce the new fellows to each other. The diverse program offered plenty of opportunities to get to know each other, with formats like poster presentations, an open space focusing on shared research interests as well as different social events (dinner at the Lille brewery or a boat trip on the Kiel fjord). Furthermore, the fellows got an introduction to the three central research topics by interdisciplinary lectures from different disciplines, which were given by CIDER alumni and CIDER seniors. Have a look at the detailed program here.

We are looking forward to the next three years and are sure that this third cohort will be as successful as the previous cohorts!
