Research seminars constitute a central forum for current scientific exchange. They are organized from the respective subject environment across disciplines and departments. Since 2023, research seminars are centrally funded by the faculty. In order for a seminar to be approved for funding, a one-time application by the participating professors via the department to the dean's office is necessary.
What is a research seminar?
A research seminar is a regular series of events in which a (usually external and at least doctoral) person from academia presents their (usually not yet published) research results, which are then discussed in the context of the seminar.
What is funded?
If a research seminar is funded by the office of the dean, the travel and accommodation costs of the guests can be covered by the faculty as part of the event series. Details on the cost framework can be found on the fact sheet (PDF) for faculty funding of research seminars in the digital form cabinet on the faculty website. Application forms and sample invoices (German and English) can also be found in the digital form cabinet. When applying for the first time, funding is granted for two years.
Applications for funding of a research seminar can be submitted at any time via the Office of Social Sciences.
