I like the diverse, quite unique and active cultural life in Leipzig. The green lungs next by the centre allowing to escape from the rush and to enjoy cycling, festival activities, sports or just relaxing in the park areas.

The enriching experience of inter- and transdisciplinary working groups, the collegial atmosphere and the excellent individual expertise of my project partners
