Institutional Seminar

The institutional seminar is open for all students and working groups of the geosciences. Its aim is to make new research results accessible to a wide audience.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Institutional Seminar does not take place in SS 2020

The lectures in the winter semester 2019/20 take place Tuesdays at 16.15 - 17.15 in the "Seanatssaal" (7th floor, NatFac building, Becherweg 21) or SR Library 00-462 groundfloor (19.11/03.12./10.12./14.01.)
