BAM is announcing today an alumni network for former staff who completed their Ph.D., researched or worked at BAM. Alumni@BAM's goal is to provide a platform that promotes a lively exchange of knowledge and information.

BAM celebrated the foundation of the network at its annual Ph.D. Day on 21st September 2017. In addition to BAM President Prof. Ulrich Panne, the initiators of the network, BAM Ph.D. students Lena Barnefske and Claudia Kästner as well as Erik Thiel and Marco Hampel also attended the event.

"We want to provide new impulses for innovative research in Germany with the BAM alumni network," says BAM President Prof. Ulrich Panne. "Alumni will be able to maintain contacts with colleagues, learn about various BAM research topics or use the network for cooperations."

Alumni@BAM offers various information and networking opportunities to its members. Former BAM staff can regularly attend presentations, workshops and alumni events, and can exchange ideas directly with their colleagues across time zones and countries worldwide..

Membership is free of charge and open to everyone who were active at BAM. You can find more information about the BAM alumni network at www.bam.de\alumni.
