Postdoctoral Fellow presenting at the weekly interdisciplinary session of the Zukunftskolleg, the Jour Fixe

Jour Fixe Programme

The Zukunftskolleg is a place for people from different departments to meet and talk about their research. This enables interdisciplinarity. Fellows are encouraged to step out of line and explore the zone between the disciplines. The Jour Fixe is the weekly interdisciplinary session for the Fellows and Senior Fellows. Here they discuss the progress of their work, present results, share and encounter questions from other disciplines and explore the possibilities of interdisciplinary collaboration.

Weekly Jour Fixe sessions take place on Tuesday from 15:15 to 16:45 pm. Attendance on invitation only.

Up to date: 13.09.2018; subject to modifications
