Events 2017

Brief Summary


For ICAS:MP, its second full year of operation is again quite an eventful one.The Centre is currently in transition from its its first two-year pre-phase (July 2015 – June 2017) to its expanded third year of pre-phase (July 2017 to June 2018).

Again, many of the Thematic Modules (TMs) have and conduct(ed) a series of International and Internal Workshops. Most of them are being hosted by ICAS:MP’s partner institutes in Delhi (IEG and CSDS). In contrast to the first two years, some events scheduled for the summer will also be hosted at the German partner universities, at the Universities of Wuerzburg and Erfurt.

In addition, Fellowships have been announced in March, and will be confirmed in May and Pilot Projects will be carried out by several TMs.
