CUI employs researchers from many different nations. This cultural diversity is seen in the cluster as an enrichment for all members. But of course, guest researchers and new cluster members who join us from abroad face specific challenges in which we want to provide them with the best possible support. The following formats and offers could be interesting for our international members:
- Diversity Days of Universität Hamburg (in German)
- PIASTA: PIASTA promotes internationalisation and intercultural exchange at Universität Hamburg under the motto: "Intercultural discovery, interdisciplinary learning, informed study!
Welcome Service for international researchers
General information and support when arriving in Hamburg is provided by the Welcome Service for international researchers of the Universität Hamburg. This Service is meant for international guest researchers, who are in Hamburg just for a short time period as well as for international researchers, who are permanent residents in Hamburg. This includes doctoral candidates.
