Colloquia

The weekly colloquium of the Collaborative Research Centre provides every semester a forum for presentations by external guests as well as by members of the SFB 1199 within a tailored thematic framework. Presentations are generally complemented by comments from members of the SFB, helping to create a common ground for discussion between guests, the Collaborative Research Centre, as well as the wider academic public.
