As announced before, the Research Training Group met on June 30th and July 1st, 2022, in Dortmund in order to discuss the research projects of our second cohort. Each member of the second cohort presented the basic ideas of his/her research project as well as the current status of it. Feedback was provided by other colleagues as well as the professors. The symposium proved to not only be supportive for the works of our newcomers: Due to the detailed presentation of the individual research processes, new perspectives on other projects, parallels and divergencies, could be developed. Certain questions and problem constellations occurred as relevant for our future discussions. Furthermore, teambuilding activities not only strengthened the bonds between us, but also generated new views on consequences research.
