[kfs-verteiler] Survey on research in the pandemic

KFS email newsletter on March 11, 2021

Dear colleagues,

Another survey? Yes, but not for just fun, but so that we can identify problems caused for you due to the pandemic!

The KFS wants to represent the interests of synchrotron radiation users during the pandemic. The measures for corona virus containment are necessary, but they may hamper you research. We would like to get an impression of the problems you face before the next KFS meeting on March 26, so that we can discuss solutions with the facilities and funding bodies.

Therefore, please participate in our survey by March 17 at:

Here are the most important questions from the survey:

- How much does the corona pandemic limit your own research?
- Which aspects of your overall research and projects / your research with synchrotron radiation are restricted by the pandemic?
- What measures would help you most at the moment?
- Do you also see opportunities through the changed working conditions?
- What is particularly important to you?

Please also encourage colleagues and staff to take part in this anonymous survey and feel free to forward this email, especially to those who may not be in our mailing list.

Thank you for your support!

Jan-Dierk Grunwaldt, KFS chair
Sarah Köster, KFS vice chair
