The Faculty Colloquium usually takes place every second Monday each month during the semester (four talks). National and international scientists as well as scientists from our Faculty of Chemistry give insight into their field of research in the framework of 45-minute lectures.

Before the colloquia, there is usually a faculty coffee, during which faculty members are cordially invited to meet for an exchange over coffee and cake.

Program Coordination: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Christian Friedrich Wilhelm Becker
