'Work in progress' seminar series (WIPS)

Short description

WIPS is a self-organised series by our PhD researchers. It enables researchers from the Hertie School and its partner institutions to present their work in progress in an amicable environment. Moreover, WIPS provides a platform to meet PhD researchers at the Hertie School and exchange on early-stage projects. We discuss a broad range of topical issues and give constructive feedback on a peer-to-peer level. 


If you are a PhD researcher and interested in presenting, please reserve your slot in the WiPS schedule. You will then receive an invitation email in advance of each seminar with a link to the online meeting on Teams. You can also email the organizers to be added to the WIPS-Group on Teams. The fortnightly sessions take place on Tuesdays from 17:00-18:00.
