Symposia and Summer Schools
The foundation supports events in all specialist areas aimed at dealing with new scientific ideas and research approaches. The Foundation would also like to encourage the testing of innovative event formats and new instruments to support interaction and networking among participants.
Support on offer
Support is available for symposia, workshops and conferences (usually up to 50 people) and summer schools (maximum 60 participants). Funding is open to all topics and is not limited to specific specialist areas. Basic requirements are
- an interdisciplinary and international context,
- active participation of young academics (doctoral and post-doctoral students), and
- a significant involvement of women scientists both among the lecturers and the participants.
Summer schools will continue to be funded throughout Germany.
