Door 24: Merry Christmas everyone from the FEZ research group

The previous 23 doors of the FEZ advent calendar 2022 opened every day for a paper published this year that group members found particularly interesting. The list is by no means exhaustive, but we hope you found the presentations inspiring. Maybe you will download and read one of the presented papers.

However, we did not only read papers, we also contributed to the literature. Overall, it has been a pretty successful year for the group, and I present a list of FEZ 2022 publications at the bottom of this post. It is particularly noteworthy that the early-career scientists of the group got very interesting papers published in pretty good international peer-reviewed journals. In addition, the list of authors of the papers illustrate that they are successful networkers and integrated in the science community.

But also the popular science activities deserve to be mentioned and credited. FEZ ran categories such as the ‘Group of the Month’ and the ‘Advent Calendar’ but also presented up-to-date information on ongoing activities or topics of general interest. We certainly hope that you enjoy reading our blog posts, and that we can attract your attention in 2023 as well.


🎄 🎄 🎄 We wish everybody a Happy Holidays and a great start of the new year 2023 🎄 🎄 🎄
