Our current research spotlight falls on Professor Gudrun Hochmayr, who has recently organized an international research conference on the harmonization of the statutes of limitation of criminal offenses at the Viadrina with great success. 

In our interview, Mr. Koch explains central aspects of the research conference and discusses ideas on how to support researchers as well as doctoral and postdoctoral candidates. We are grateful for the contribution.

Dear Professor Hochmayr,

You recently organized an international conference on the harmonization of the statutes of limitation of criminal offenses at the Viadrina. Could you briefly summarize the subject of the conference?

The conference was part of a three-year research project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). In this project we examine the statutes of limitation of 14 countries, with the aim of suggesting a proposal for their harmonization.

Gestures are now viewed as an integral part of spoken language. But little attention has been paid to the recipients’ cognitive processes of integrating both gesture and speech.

Such an integration is seen as key response to the rising costs and lacking quality of health care that many health care systems face. ‘Integrated Care’ is generally seen as an approach
