KNIR Research Dialogues

In the spring of 2021, we started with the KNIR Research Dialogues. This is a series of lectures during which international scientists present remarkable results of recent research. Their research is in line with the core themes of the research at the KNIR.
The KNIR Research Dialogues take place once a month on Wednesdays between 17:00 and 19:00. Presently we are welcoming guest speakers live at the KNIR and you are invited to join us at the Institute or via Zoom.
