Internal Survey @ GSI

  • Recently Helmholtz-Juniors @ GSI has conducted a survey based on "Relocation Issue" of the PhD Students working in GSI. The Survey was intended to look into the problem and get an idea of HOW BIG is the problem. The Survey was a success. The detailed analysis of the survey concluded that the relocation was only a local issue limited to a particular group/department and not a global issue. The detailed report dated 23 April 2013 can be found here. pdf
