Diversity and Innovation
The 28th of May was completely influenced by transHAL and the Diversity day
The 28th of May was a memorable day in many respects: On the one side, transhal 2019, the 5th innovation day of Halle (“Hallescher Innovationstag”) which is organized by the MLU in cooperation with the city of Halle, attracted various visitors. On the other side, the Diversity Day was up on the agenda at the market place in Halle.
For the innovation day, more than 140 guests and numerous exhibitors enrolled. The ScienceCampus Halle – Pant Science Bioeconomy was also represented with a stall. A diversity of people including interested entrepreneurs, networkers, members of the university and graduates got into conversations with Dr. Anne-Laure Tissier and Ina Volkhardt from the ScienceCampus Halle, e. g. Mr. Peter Hinrichs from the Ministry of Economy, Science and Digitalization of the State Saxony-Anhalt.
Diversity was also in the focus in the city center: On the occasion of the Diversity day, two pavilions of all the Leibniz facilities located in Halle were stationed from 12am till 2 pm. The Halle Institute for Economic Research (IWH), the IAMO (Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Transition Economies (IAMO), the Leibniz Institute of Plantbiochemistry (IPB) as well as the Leibniz ScienceCampus Halle – Plantbased Bioeconomy (SCH) invited to participate in various activities and a handed out a variety of give-aways – because research is as divers as the persons involved.
