Research Seminars

Goal of the RISIS Research Seminars

The goal of the RISIS Research Seminars is to foster the exchange of ideas within and outside RISIS community.

In each seminar, scholars and practitioners present and discuss their ongoing research. Seminars promote communication among scholars at a critical stage of their research on a shared topic.

The seminars should involve a broad scholarly audience within and outside RISIS. External presenters might be involved, according to the relevance of their research for RISIS and the use of the RISIS infrastructure.

To improve the effectiveness of the seminars, a discussant from the scientific community is involved.
