About the colloquium

Presenting one's research is an important aspect of academic work. FORSCHEnde Frauen offers female early-career researchers of all disciplines the opportunity to present their research to the university public. During the follow-up discussion, there is room for questions, suggestions, praise, and constructive criticism.

In the past, all colloquium papers were published in Open Access format with the support of the Women's Office under the series title FORSCHEnde Frauen. We are currently adapting this format to help diversify the publication experience of participating female early-career researchers.

The aim is to provide female early-career researchers with additional publishing opportunities and to promote interdisciplinary research at the University of Bamberg.

The lecture series is open to the public, i.e. all interested parties are welcome. The lectures are followed by an informal exchange of ideas. This way, contacts for future collaborations can be established beyond disciplinary boundaries.

The colloquium is a measure introduced by the University Women's Representatives for the targeted support of female early-career researchers at the University of Bamberg. The focus is on doctoral students, but also on postdocs who want to expand their research portfolio. After participation and publication, the successful female early-career researchers will also receive an award of 500€ for their contribution (i.e. 500€ per contribution). The aim is to enable the female early-career researchers to attend additional conferences as well.

You will find the reports on the individual colloquia of the FORSCHEnden FRAUEN on our blog.
