EventsGiRyd intends to bring the members of the widespread and growing Rydberg community closer together. To facilitate this goal the priority programme hosts and supports a variety of events in Germany and abroad.
SeminarsGerman and international experts are invited to visit members of the priority programme and to showcase their work in seminars open to all GiRyd members as well as the interested scientific community. All seminars are announced via the GiRyd website.
Status WorkshopsAnnual status workshops bring together the participating groups and invited international experts in the field of Rydberg or highly excited systems, to define the rapidly developing state of the art of the field and discuss the most recent advances. They also provide a platform for project groups to network, discuss current developments and exchange ideas for cooperations and joint projects.
