At the Lab Warming Party, Krieglstein took a look behind the doors of the shared labs, where she got her own impression of livMatS research. In a lecture, spokesperson Prof. Dr. Jürgen Rühe also presented the equipment of the laboratories, in which the cluster has invested more than one million euros. The event was designed as a hybrid format, so that all researchers of the cluster could follow the inauguration from home.
The shared labs are part of the IDEASFactory@FIT cluster concept. "With the labs, we want to create an inspiring environment that encourages all livMatS scientists to jointly pursue creative paths in our research," says Rühe. In addition to the Shared Labs, event formats of the IDEASFactory@FIT also contribute to this. Such as the livMatS Colloquium, where international researchers discuss current developments in their field with all livMatS members. Another component is the Writer's Studio, which the cluster is currently setting up. It trains young researchers in scientific writing and supports them in the individual steps of the publication process of scientific journals. "All of these elements link the individual disciplines involved in livMatS, thus preparing an ideal breeding ground for innovation."
