HZB newspaper lichtblick published

In the new lichtblick we look with Bernd Rech, spokesman of the scientific management, at the upcoming funding period of the Helmholtz Association, the POF IV. What does it mean for our center? And what exciting topics will be accompanying us in the near future? You will find the answers in the interview on page 2.

For several weeks, intensive work has been going on during the shutdown in the storage ring. Christian Jung and his team are holding the strings together. Many know him as the person to ask if you need anything in the vicinity of the experimental hall or simply want to know something. In the cover story, for example, you can read about what the physicist would study if he had the choice again today. And what he loves most about his job and why he sometimes, even if only briefly, gets into trouble.

How does the works council actually operate in corona times? And will the next works meeting take place again? We asked these questions to Nobert Beck, the chairman of the HZB works council - and we also asked him what he would like for the near future.
