Leipzig researcher Katharina Kullman is currently undertaking an Athens exchange and will be working with the EKKE team through to 21 December 2016.
Katharina’s Athens exchange tasks include: elaborating on a perspective for institutional landscapes and civic societal cooperation for people who need help, specifically refugees; finalisation of Work Package 6 publications; and contributing to the preparation of the Social Policies and Diversity workshop organised by the Greek team for the DIVERCITIES: Governing Urban Diversity Conference in Rotterdam in February 2017.
Exchange opportunities for junior researchers were discussed at the Milan Consortium Meeting in February 2016. It was agreed in Milan that exchanges are a terrific way for young researchers to gain international experience, with Milan’s Alba Angelucci’s fruitful experience in Delft in 2015 being great example of what is possible.
Katharina’s first impressions of Athens can be seen in the images above, from the office outlook through to street scenes. We’re looking forward to learning more about Katharina’s Greek experiences.
