Institutional Seminar

Institutional Seminar, SS 2022, Tuesday 16.15-17.15

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

This winter term we invited several alumni of the institute to present their current work and tell their career entry story focussing on future job perspectives for our students.

Please note: All meetings are taking place in hybrid form (in presence at the Senatssaal 07 232 AND online@Teams). Any divergence in format will be denoted in the announcements and the list below.
