Senior Fellows 2014-2016

In 2011, the State of Lower Saxony successfully initiated an international and interdisciplinary Senior Fellows Programme which will be prolonged for another three years. The aim is to bring experienced senior researchers and younger scholars together in the informal atmosphere of the Wolfenbüttel community of guest researchers. Senior Fellows scholarships are awarded for one to three months.
