Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
In October 2012 the international undergraduates' conference "The dialogue in Russo-German perspective" took place at the Humboldt-University, Berlin, Department of Philosophy.
Quality and diversity
Two characteristics of the undergraduates' conference were the comeback of Russo-German intellectual relations and the high level not only of the evening lectures but of the students' contributions as well. The event was as manifoldly and inspiring as we hoped-for, in terms of interdisciplinary contributions, the variety of topics, and the participants. Therefore, a special athmosphere was possible to bring up again old dialoges and create new ones. Many motivating discussions took place and new academic contacts were established.
We are proud that we were able to grant scholarships (travelling costs) for foreign students in the amount of 3000 Euros. The support of the junior scientific staff, not only based on "excellence" or economic concerns, was important for us.
Through the complexe financial concept we were also able to cooperate only with selected partners. Especially our sponsors pay attention to fair trade.
