18/03/2022 | For all those who are curious and thirsty for knowledge, the Leibniz Association wants to make an exciting offer with the upcoming "Book a Scientist" on April 8, 2022: Book your exclusive, virtual conversation with Leibniz scientists! In such personal conversations, the researchers will provide insight into their topics and their everyday work, answer your individual questions and look forward to exchanging ideas with you.

What happens in the brain during and after work interruptions? How do international sanctions work? How does breast milk influence eating behaviour in adulthood? Can government regulation reduce hate online? What does Syria look like "after the war"? How should Germany and Europe shape their climate policy mix? And what help do I get at the resilience outpatient clinic?

At "Book a Scientist," you have the chance to spend 25 minutes exclusively and one-on-one with an expert from the Leibniz Association and ask everything you've always wanted to know about your favourite topic.

Three scientists from the ZMT are also participating this time with exciting topics:

Prof. Dr. Nils Moosdorf, WG Submarine Groundwater Discharge

Everything is connected to everything else - The Earth as a complex system.

Peter Steiglechner, WG Systems Ecology

Going social: Exploring social phenomena with computer models.
