Zoom Meet Up *Christmas special*

16th December | 16:00

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 valid Corona regulations.  Afterwards, we want to bring you a bit closer to your new home and introduce you this time to typical German Christmas traditions and nice excursion options in winter.

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 to wcp_eventsuni-potsdamde . We will then send you the details.

We look forward to seeing you!
