Forum Scientiarum

Humboldt Lecture Series at Tübingen University

The Humboldt Lecture Series gives Humboldt fellows who spend some time at Tübingen University the opportunity to present their work to a broader faculty. It thereby provides a platform to discuss the research of some of the most excellent researchers from all over the world in an interdisciplinary context. Additionally, the Humboldt Lecture Series is meant to be a meeting point for all international scholars at Tübingen University.

The Humboldt Lectures are jointly organised by Welcome Center of Tübingen University, the Humboldt Club and Forum Scientiarum.

The lecture series is supported by Alexander vom Humboldt Stiftung/Foundation
