Hanse Lectures

In the “Hanse Lectures” series, we invite renowned speakers to hold lectures and visit the HWK and labs in the region, usually on the last Thursday of the month during the semester at 6pm. After the lecture, all guests are invited to join the speaker for an informal dinner with the opportunity for further discussion and informal exchange. We appreciate your timely registration so that we can plan the catering accordingly!

Please send an E-Mail to Dr. Dorothe Poggel if you wish to receive invitations for the Hanse Lectures on a regular basis or if you would like to suggest a speaker. By the way: topics of the lectures encompass all disciplines integrated in HWK's "Brain & Mind" research area, i.e. they are not limited to the neurosciences and cognitive sciences.
