Our Collaborative Research Center unifies researchers from diverse fields with a common shared interest to investigate isolated quantum systems and universality in extreme conditions. For our success it is of great importance that we foster an inclusive working environment, where everyone is treated respectfully. We believe science is a diverse endeavor: diversity provides new impulses, ideas, perspectives, and innovation.

Today (November 18) is the International Day of LGBTQIA+ People in STEM. The date is symbolic of the 60th anniversary of American Astronomer and gay activist Frank Kameny’s US Supreme Court fight against workplace discrimination. We would like to use this occasion to emphasize our welcome of all members of CRC ISOQUANT, irrespective of their gender or sexual identity.
