Alexander von Humboldt Foundation

For the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation we have been organising numerous events for many years. Currently, we are commissioned for the New Year’s Reception, the Symposium for Research Award Winners, the Annual Conference and the meeting of the International Advisory Board. Furthermore, we organize events of the Philipp Schwartz Initiative.

And now we are off to Cameroon, Poland, Chile, Japan… the Humboldt Colloquia are taking con gressa around the globe. Every year, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation holds two major interdisciplinary colloquia abroad to which the Foundation’s alumni and junior researchers from the respective region are invited. con gressa will be responsible for the overall organization of these events from 2020 onwards. With the colloquia, the Foundation aims to strengthen networks among Humboldtians and bring them into contact with German research funding organizations.

con gressa’s responsibilities include the (continuing) development of the event formats, the overall organisation and the budget monitoring, the participation management, and support for award winners, guests of honour, and handling the production of event publications.
