Zoom Meet Up for new researchers

12th December | 12:00 noon

In this Zoom meeting, we would like to  bring you as soon-to-arrive or just-arrived scientists in Potsdam and Berlin, 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!
