It is a tradition in the Institute that we start the New Year with a joint breakfast.
This year, of course, it was only possible virtually.
Only 5-6 weeks later we had to shut down the institute.
A few weeks later, we were able to resume operations under strict rules, but unfortunately not with 100% performance until today.
Especially our PhD students suffer from the shutdown until today.
But, hope dies last. With the vaccinations in sight, life will hopefully return to normal by summer at the latest.
