Therefore, we have started transitioning to virtual instructions of our upcoming events.
Once the situation allows it, we will resume our activities in our own rooms.

After consultation with our guest speakers from the CRC lectures, we can happily announce that the IRTG colloquia and CRC Lecture Series will continue to take place on schedule through live broadcasting via Zoom.

For this purpose, online registrations for upcoming lectures will be available on our IRTG homepage ( from 3 PM on May 4, 2020.
It is important that you register individually for each event you would like to participate, so that we know who we send invitation links to.

If you haven’t installed Zoom on your computer or you’re having difficulties to do so, please let us know in advance and we will gladly assist you.

Further information will follow soon.
Stay safe y’all.
