The Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK) and the Research Center Neurosensory Science of Oldenburg University have created a new seminar series for young researchers in the Neurosciences and Cognitive Sciences. The goal is twofold: we would like to strengthen the scientific networks of young researchers at regional institutions, and we would also like to give them an opportunity to practice presenting their projects, share methodological knowledge, and to discuss their findings in a friendly atmosphere. 

In two-month intervals, a Fellow of the HWK or an external guest speaker will meet with young researchers from the region working on related topics. The group will be kept deliberately small to create an intense work atmosphere, including a lecture of the guest speaker, presentations of the students and discussions of their projects with the speaker and other students. Registration is required, and those students who would like to actively participate by presenting their projects would have to submit an abstract beforehand. 

The seminar will take place on the last Tuesday of each odd-numbered month with the following agenda: 

14:00 h – 15:00 h    Presentation of the Fellow/ guest speaker
15:00 h – 15:30 h    Coffee break
15:30 h – 17:30 h    Presentations of regional PhD-students
