The kick-off for interdisciplinary and international research was the NWVM conference in November 2013. This conference was also a platform to promote further supporting instruments to encourage and facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration and new scientific alliances. The NWVM offers financial support to set up interdisciplinary workgroups or to organize interdisciplinary workshops.
NWVM Chair: Prof. Dr. Helmut Hillebrand
Concept and coordination: Britta Hamann, Office for Guest Scientists
