Guest Researchers

CEPLAS is embedded in an extensive network of national and international scientists and scientific organisations. During the past years, several scientists (from students to professors) from all around the world visited CEPLAS, e.g. in the course of their sabbatical or as a research stay.

Furthermore, we promote the exchange of our students, e.g. supported by our mobility fund or by participation in the exchange programme DAAD-RISE.
