About the colloquium

Presenting one's research is an important part of academic work. "Forschende Frauen in Bamberg" offers female early career researchers of all disciplines the opportunity to give a presentation about their research to the university public. During the discussion after the talks there is room for questions and suggestions, praise and constructive criticism.

All colloquium papers are published in Open Access format with the support of the Women's Office under the series title Forschende Frauen in Bamberg.

The aim is to provide young women researchers additional opportunities for publication and, at the same time, to convey a picture of women's interdisciplinary research at the University of Bamberg.

The lecture series is open to the public, i.e. all interested parties are cordially invited. The lectures will be followed by an informal exchange of ideas. In this way, contacts can be established beyond the disciplinary boundaries.

The colloquium is a measure of the University Women's Representative for the targeted promotion of young female scientists at the University of Bamberg. The focus is on doctoral students, but also on postdocs who want to expand their scientific portfolio. After participation and publication, the successful young women scientists will also receive an award for their contribution of 500 euros (per contribution). The aim is to enable the young scientists to attend other conferences as well.
