WZB goes Oxford

WZB wins the bid for an international alumni conference

The WZB has won the call for applications for an international alumni meeting issued by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The prize is endowed with 40.000 Euros. The prize money will be used to fund a WZB alumni conference entitled “The Social Sciences in Times of Brexit” at the University of Oxford on June 14 and 15, 2018.

The program of the Alumni Conference can be found here.

The exchange of ideas on science policy between research alumni and colleagues and representatives of academic institutions aims to explore possible consequences of Brexit, to discuss strategies for dealing with these consequences, and to facilitate networking between scholars and institutions in Germany and the United Kingdom.

After winning 100.000 Euros in a former call in 2016 designed to support the institution’s international alumni program, the WZB had qualified for this second round.

Please contact alumni [at] wzb.eu if you are interested in participating.
