BIGSSS Special Events and Initiatives

In our work we draw on strong ties to academic and non-academic partner institutions established through the collaboration and exchange of doc­toral fellows and faculty members, but also through the exchange of ideas and joint initiatives.

BIGSSS is thus always interested in extending its network and in developing innovative event formats on current topics of societal and political relevance and scope.

Encouraging our PhD fellows to share their scientific insights with a public audience and offering them excellent networking opportunities are two important features of the BIGSSS specials.
