Our guests

Naturally, the TRR 266 values exchange with the international scientific community. We are very pleased to welcome many international guests throughout the years. These 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.
