WEBINAR on 30.4.2020, 18:00 – 19:30 CET

Originally planned as a tool for information and exchange about more technical, organisational and financial aspects and experiences of last year we more and more move towards a broader approach also including aspects of how we can stay in touch/ organise an exchange even if travelling still remains impossible due to COVID-19 induced planning uncertainties for an indefinite time.
We will offer some “appetizers” in form of videos or short presentations of hosts and trainees of 2019 as a starting point.
We are open to any questions that might come from your side and encourage you to bring in topics and proposals of how to organise a scholarship programme bridging the time until physical exchange is possible again. Thinking about bringing FS Scholarship programme out of the simple frame of an exchange programme, this could be a starting point to form a FS Scholarship community based on exchanges on specific topics that might crystallise!
