Universität KonstanzExzellenzcluster „Kulturelle Grundlagen von Integration“

University of Bologna

The University of Bologna is offering a practical expression or “personalization” of already-existing cooperation with the University of Konstanz in the form of an English-language exchange-program in “Philosophy of Science” for doctoral students at the Center.

The program will run until autumn 2012 and can be expanded both thematically and in respect to participating disciplines. In this framework program participants will be able to travel to Bologna at the soonest possible time for up to three months while maintaining their ties to Constance. In Bologna they will receive temporary workplaces and help in finding housing. Participation in the weekly English-language colloquium is desirable.

In turn doctoral students from Bologna will be able to work in Constance at the Center in the same period, supported from Bologna by Erasmus Grants. We will be able to offer them use of the large offices in the Y-building and participation in the Center’s English-language activities. The institutional “added value” for the Center will consist in expansion and strengthening of its international ties. The contact-person at the Center is Prof. Dr. Bernhard Kleeberg.
