The German national Young Professional Program ‘Next Generation DKE’ is organizing an intensive networking and concept development workshop for young professionals in Offenbach am Main, Germany, from August 11-14, 2022. We would like to invite all young professionals who are eager to expand the current program of their NCs for young professionals to apply for this unique opportunity!

During the workshop, the various programs of the Next Generation DKE portfolio will be presented and discussed. In addition, the members of the Next Generation DKE will explain how they created the current community and what opportunities they have to build a valuable network with experienced experts that will accompany them throughout their careers.

At the same time, we would like to ask the participants to present their NCs' activities for young professionals.

In the further course of the workshop, the participants will outline and develop their own new projects. In summary, this should result in a portfolio of concepts that can be implemented in the short to medium term and which can be easily adapted by YPs to expand the program of their NCs. The results will be made available to all participating NCs.
