What our researchers say
Unfortunately, due to some last minute changes in the plan I could not personally come and thank you. So, I am writing this email to thank you so much! ‘Thank you’ is really a small word to express my gratitude. The job you are doing is incredible and I learned a lot about Germany from your events. If it wasn’t you, I would not have explored many regions. I already miss Dresden and the Welcome Center! I wish you a lot of success and hope the Welcome Center gets even bigger! Thank you once again!

I love Dresden! I think it is the perfect size to support a vibrant and dynamic community. There is an interesting mix of old and young (buildings, people, ideas) that keeps you on your toes. I don’t know exactly what the future holds for me, but I wish I could stay in Dresden forever.

A Message from our Rector
The research alliance DRESDEN-concept has clearly and unambiguously positioned itself for open-mindedness and tolerance. We are grateful that we, at DRESDEN-concept, learn, teach, work and live together with several thousand international researchers and students to achieve top performances in both research and teaching. Science and knowledge are international and not subject to national, cultural or religious backgrounds! DRESDEN-concept thrives on the interaction between our foreign and German members, who are all a non-negotiable part of our research alliance. We have achieved our aim of making foreign staff and students enthusiastic about their chosen DRESDEN-concept institution, at which they came to work and study. Now I see it as our duty to ensure that they experience Dresden as a charming city and a great place to live. Come and join us, we look forward to seeing you here!- Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil.
