Ernst Jung-Symposium 2021
Dear Sir or Madam
That was science live and in color: On May 20, 2021, we have awarded four renowned scientists at our first digital Ernst Jung Symposium and offered interested participants the opportunity to follow the ceremonial awarding as well as their presentations on their outstanding research results via livestream. The digital format proved to be an ideal platform for sharing the cutting-edge research results of our award winners with a wider audience, giving them the recognition we believe they deserve.
Jochen Spethmann
"The digital format of the Ernst Jung Symposium 2021 is in line with modern demands and the Jung Foundation's aspirations for the scientific research of today and tomorrow - this is also clear by the great interest in the presentations, as well as the award ceremony itself." This is how our Chairman of the Board Jochen Spethmann, who opened the event, summarizes the Ernst Jung Symposium 2021. You can find the entire opening speech here.
