Dr. Sabine Schäfer, the executive manager of the BGHS, welcomed the new colleagues and international guests and informed the about the structure and the programme of the BGHS and introduced the staff of the BGHS office. The Doctoral Representatives also took the chance for a warm welcome. In the following coffee break in the BGHS-Lounge the doctoral researchers and guests got to know each other.
