Scholarship talks of the Dr. Liselotte Kirchner Scholarship programme

Young researchers follow a colleague's lecture online on a large video screen.

A central component of the Dr. Liselotte Kirchner Scholarship of the Francke Foundations is the presentation of results within the framework of colloquium events with lectures and subsequent discussion rounds, to which all interested parties are cordially invited. The colloquia will take place in the Neubauer Hall, House 52 of the Francke Foundations. They are hybrid events – the respective access link will be published here in a timely manner.

Access to the event on November 2, 2023 with Prof. Dr. Adelisa Malena and Prof. Dr. Daniel L. Brunner
