Leadership and management in science: How the next generation of leading scientists feels the present and sees the future
Dear young scientists,

What is the next scientific (r)evolution? What is going to be the breakthrough of the following century? What if the answer was depending of the way that science and scientists are managed and leaded?
That has been one of the topics discussed at Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting. In that context, the project “Leadership and management in science: How the next generation of leading scientists feels the present and sees the future” has been started. This survey study brings together two young scientists (Maude Giroud and Juhwan Noh) as well as the Nobel Laureate Michael Levitt and the senior partner at Mckinsey & Co, Matthias Evers. In this survey, you will find the core questions of our project about how the new generation of scientist appreciates leadership and what the future improvements could be. We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and your help on this project. We hope to publish the results soon.

Please note: The collected data will be used for a scientific purpose and will be the object of an article to be published in a scientific journal. Even if you have the option to give us your email address at the end, the questionnaire remains anonymous, no name will be published or shared with third parties in accordance with the European GDPR.

If you have any further questions you can contact us by email to: maude.giroud@helmholtz-muenchen.de or njuhwan@naver.com
