Many outstanding researchers were under 30 years of age when they embarked on their pioneering studies, for example Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Marie Curie. In view of demographic change – tens of thousands of qualified STEM employees are already lacking in Germany – and the global competition for talented scientists, this means for us: Organizations that carry out basic research at the highest international level must be attractive enough to succeed in recruiting top junior scientists.
