Following the presentations, there was a reception event. The library plans to host the event three times annually to give researchers at the MPIWG the opportunity to celebrate their new publications with colleagues, get to know each other, and learn how to pitch their research in three minutes. We really enjoyed celebrating our researchers’ achievements at our Publications Slam event! Thank you to all who participated.
