Workshops and networking

Every semester we offer 2-3 interdisciplinary workshops. Participation is voluntary and free of charge.

Together you are stronger than alone.  Networks offer the opportunity to learn from each other and to profit from each other's experiences. We encourage you to initiate informal meetings, attend or even organise conferences, and use the social platforms.
