ECMath-Salon: A talk series on research

Mathematical team play requires communication beyond the scientific level. ECMath established the series of ECMath-Salons about the conditions for successful science under the motto

„Starting the weekend with good talks and good wine“.

The idea is to invite leading figures from science and politics to a glass of good wine and good conversation about their personal credo, experiences, and tips for the young generation, first on stage and later with the audience.

The ECMath-Salon usually takes place twice per winter semester at Urania, on fridays at 16:00. The salon is being held in German. The entrance is free of charge.

Upcoming Events

The next ECMath Salon will take place in summer 2018.
