GAIN Chapters

Join your local GAIN CHAPTER: The chapters provide the opportunity to connect with fellow scientists, to exchange experiences and ideas, and to lend support to each other. They invite regularly to activities such as local events, participating in lectures and workshops, or visiting the theater.
