Within the framework of RWTH Aachen's Institutional Strategy, young researchers founded the Aachen Center for Young Researchers or AixCYR in 2009. Academic staff members, principally ones who have already completed a doctoral degree, at RWTH Aachen, who are pursuing an academic career, come together in AixCYR.
