Manuel Steinbauer (University of Bayreuth).


Dear colleagues,

With the funding of our Paleosynthesis 
<>project we are now making our 
second big step, aiming to strengthen Paleontology in Germany but also 

Our first step was the nomination of candidates and their election for 
our Advisory Board 
by the German paleo community. Now we want to involve paleontologists 
from all over the world.

As a relatively small but scientifically diverse community, we need to 
know how to fortify paleontology and to prepare our scientific field for 
a promising future. Your ideas will help to find focus for the entire 
discipline but also help in selecting relevant workshop 
topics. These workshops will be carried out at our Science Center in 
Erlangen, starting next year.


*Please help your discipline by phrasing:*

*What is YOUR BIG QUESTION in Paleontology?*

To participate please use following link: Submit your BIG QUESTION 
<> __

In our online template you will find the option to submit additional 
suggestions / ideas. If there is interest to develop and work on the Big 
Questions with us, please indicate it in this box.


*Deadline is June 30, 2020*.
