It is not just 2022 that is coming to an end, but also the term in office of our President Hans-Christian Pape – we will miss his commitment and ideas. In this newsletter, we are looking back on his time at the Foundation and on the good things this otherwise crisis-ridden year held in store for us.
Six new Humboldt Professors were selected, two of whom work in the field of artificial intelligence. The participants in the Humboldt Residency Programme met in Berlin to share ideas on whether, and how, social cohesion is possible. And at the sixth #ResearchComLab, journalists and researchers got together to learn from one another and discuss solutions to the global resource crisis.
We are particularly pleased that the threatened cuts to the Foundation’s budget could be averted. In the new year, we shall thus still be able to direct all our efforts to supporting researchers around the world, especially those who are at risk due to ongoing crises. And with that, we should like, once again, to say a big thank you for our network’s engagement.
