Conference: Academics on the Flight

The Leipzig based network Chance for Science* will hold a Conference for Academics on the Flight on 15 September 2017 at the Mediencampus Villa Ida. The conference aims to offer refugee academics the opportunity to build networks and to exchange their academic insights. It is not meant to let experts talk about refugees, but to let fled academics talk about their areas of expertise.

The number of participants is limited. Please register until 12th September 2017. Conference languages are German and English (simultaneous translation).


*Chance for Science is an initiative of Prof. Dr. Carmen Bachmann (Chair of Business Administration / Taxation, Leipzig University). By exchanging knowledge with German colleagues, refugee academics gain the opportunity to apply and maintain their scientific expertise. Via its website it facilitates establishing contacts between refugee students, academics and scientists to local colleagues. Currently, the network has about 700 members.
