IMPRS students meet Brian Schmidt

During his visit to Heidelberg on April 26, 2013, Nobel laureate Brian Schmidt found time to meet IMPRS/HGSFP PhD students. Brian had kindly agreed to provide some career advice presenting a talk on

"How to win a Nobel Prize (or to be a happy Astronomer if You don't)".

During the common lunch buffet after the presentation there was plenty of time to chat with Brian and to ask further questions.

IMPRS-HD thanks Norbert Christlieb (LSW) for initiating the meeting.

Below are some pictures of the event.

The evaluation procedure has been led by Dr. Herbert Festl from the MPG head quarters.

The board of referees evaluated IMPRS-HD positively and recommended its extension for another period.
