During my PhD studies, I was working mainly at a national research institute at which my university supervisor was cross-appointed. Even though the institute was 30 km away from the university, my supervisor insisted that I attended regular seminars at the university. I thought it would be more efficient if universities concentrated on teaching while all research was done at research institutes. Today. I understand how this division was a bad idea; I understand how important research is for teaching, and how important teaching is for research. And most importantly I understand how crucial university and college teaching and research is for our society.
