Symposium Young Marsilius Fellows 2022


For one year, the first generation of Young Marsilius Fellows changed perspectives: As an interdisciplinary group of 13 Heidelberg postdocs from a broad range of disciplines, we opened up new insights to each other. And we thought about how to communicate the findings of our research to a broad audience in an exciting and generally understandable way.

We will present the results in the frame of a final symposium "WissenSchafFt PERSPEKTIVEN" on Thursday, July 14, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Marsilius Kolleg. Registration is open to all students, researchers and the interested public.

We look forward to an interesting afternoon!
