Holger Reich, Freie Universität Berlin, succeeds Jürg Kramer, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, as Chair of the BMS, the Graduate School of the Cluster of Excellence MATH+. Jürg Kramer had been Chair since November 2020.
The BMS leadership rotates every two years between the three participating universities, FU, HU, and TU Berlin. Gavril Farkas, Humboldt-Universität, and John M. Sullivan, Technische Universität Berlin, will serve as deputy chairs.
