Viadrina Open Lecture Series

Dear all,

the team of the Viadrina Open Lecture Series (VOLS) is looking for volunteers and people interested in shaping our future program!

The VOLS is a series of academic sessions which have been primarily designed for refugees in Brandenburg, but is also open to everyone else who is interested. VOLS wants to offer refugees a first or renewed access to academic life in Frankfurt (Oder) and give them the opportunity to establish contacts with students and researchers at the same time. It also gives a platform to academics who had to flee from their home country.

So far, we completed three successful semesters with 27 sessions overall. We are always looking for people who want to participate in the organization of the VOLS and shape its future design.
