Leibniz Networks

Leibniz Networks have a particular thematic focus. They see themselves as a central contact point for their research field not only within the Leibniz Association but also for external project managers, policy-makers, the media and associations. They are located at the intersection between other networks, collating and mediating information, assisting in the search for project partners and channeling enquiries. Joint activities and events complete the profile of Leibniz Networks.
