Philipp Lachenmann: DELPHI Rationale


Germany Scholarship theme course of the Schering Stiftung

02.05.2018, Berlin | Since April 2014, the “Image Knowledge Gestaltung” cluster of excellence at Humboldt University of Berlin has helped foster young talents through a Germany Scholarship theme course supported by the Schering Stiftung. Again this year, fifteen students initiated and developed their own interdisciplinary research projects and realized them in cooperation with the cluster’s staff. The scholarship recipients will present the findings of their year-long project work at a public closing event titled “Eintauchen/Auftauchen” (Submerging/Emerging) on May 8, 2018, at 6p.m., at the excellence cluster. This will be followed on May 31, 2018, by a party for scholarship recipients of the current theme course “Natur der Wahrnehmung – Kunst der Täuschung” (Nature of Perception – Art of Deception),” which started during the summer term at the excellence cluster in cooperation with the Humboldt University’s Faculty of Life Sciences and the Berlin School of Mind and Brain. Over the course of a year, students from the humanities, social sciences, and life sciences regularly meet for workshops and colloquiums and do small-group research on four different topics.

As part of its programs to promote young talents, the Ernst Schering Foundation has participated in the Germany Scholarship program of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research since the 2012 summer term. Since the 2013 summer term, the Foundation has supported a pilot project called “theme course” at Berlin’s Humboldt University, where young scientists from a variety of disciplines gain insight into current research projects at an early stage in their studies and have the opportunity to develop and present their own ideas. Conversely, the participating scientists hope that the scholarship recipients’ thirst for knowledge and fresh views stimulates and inspires them to critically interrogate scientific theories, including their own, and develop new perspectives.
