Five years ago, we celebrated our 10th anniversary with the special publication of the first edition of this brochure. The past 5 years brought many challenges to our lives. The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically changed the way we live, work and interact. Maintaining a strong work culture and ethic was especially difficult during this time and represented one of our biggest challenges both during and after the pandemic. Despite this, GRHD researchers continued to thrive and GRHD continues its upward development trajectory. Today, we mark our 15th anniversary with the publication of this 2d edition. All GRHD faculty were provided the opportunity to submit short pieces describing their research, and members of the community were invited to personally reflect on the evolution of GRHD over the years.
I invite you to read about our history, our major achievements, and our vision for the future.
