Our guests

Naturally, the TRR 266 values exchange with the international scientific community and representatives from business and politics. We are very pleased to welcome many international guests throughout the years.

Our guests often visit us for just one or a few days – for example as presenters in our TRR 266 Seminar Series. In addition to these valued guests there are several researchers who visit us for a longer period of time as visitor or through a Mercator Fellowship. The Mercator Fellowship is a scholarship within the DFG’s funding program. More information about the scholarship as well as interviews with our TRR 266 Mercator Fellows can be found here. If you are interested in a research stay with the TRR 266 or a Mercator Fellowship, you can find our opportunities here
