Dates and Program

This year's Sommerabend will take place on Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at Beckmanns Hof in the Botanical Garden of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

This year we are organising a panel discussion with researchers from the three UA Ruhr universities, who will discuss with you the question "How much international visibility does a successful career in science need?" and report on their own international experiences.

A focus will be on the importance of international activities such as research stays and conferences. Virtual mobility and subject-related differences will also be discussed. Take the opportunity to network across universities, exchange ideas and discuss career-relevant topics!
