Zoom Meet Up for new researchers

27th February | 4:00 p.m.

In this Zoom meeting, we would like to start by giving you, as soon-to-arrive or just-arrived scientists in Potsdam and Berlin, a brief overview of the currently applicable Corona regulations. Afterwards, we want to bring you a bit closer to your new home and give you tips for excursions in the region.

You can get to know each other a bit better and make contacts with scientists and PhD students already living here locally. If you would like to join us and meet your international colleagues, please send us a short message. We will then send you the details.

We look forward to seeing you!
