liveSciences³ International Lecture Series
Local Solutions for Global Challenges
In its third year, the liveSciences³ project continues to build on existing partnerships and supports the development and expansion of the Life Science Network. The International Lecture Series brings scientists, teaching staff & students from Göttingen and all liveSciences³ partner universities together to share the latest knowledge about ongoing research on Global Challenges and discuss Local Solutions.
After three successful runs of the Lecture Series in 2021 and 2022, we are happy to announce that the Lecture Series will continue in the winter semester starting in November 2022 and closing in January 2023. Again, colleagues, scientists, and researchers from the University of Göttingen and associated networks, our liveSciences³ partner universities in Europe and Latin America, will enrich the Lecture Series with their inspiring talks. We invite you to join us in discussing current research questions addressing Global Challenges and offering Local Solutions. The overall topic: Research projects dealing with sustainability at the University of Göttingen and our partner universities.

Can I get credits for taking part in the International Lecture Series?
The International Lecture Series is part of the key competencies module "SK.Forst.04: Local Solutions for Global Challenges (Seminar)" at the University of Göttingen. Students from Göttingen and all liveSciences³ partner universities can get a certificate of attendance and 3 credits after successful participation (including the exam).
For MSc BEE students the Lecture Series can instead be credited as colloquium in the module “M.Biodiv.417: Scientific project management and specific research methods”.For questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
