My Position/Profession/Field of Study
Founding Director of the German Center for Astrophysics
There are good reasons why I am enthusiastic about Saxony and especially Lusatia as a science location; firstly, its location in the center of Europe and universities and colleges with a focus on natural sciences and technology and numerous scientific links, including cross-border links, are partners for basic research, technology development and digitalization. The people, firmly rooted in the region, with great openness and curiosity and the treasure in Lusatia, the granite rock with its outstanding seismographic conditions, all this makes Saxony an ideal location for the German Center for Astrophysics.
