The Ladenburg Roundtables
are a forum in which scientists and experts from practical fields discuss research topics of particular relevance to science and society. The discourses are open to representatives of all disciplines.
This format comprises one- or two-day events held on the Foundation’s premises. Scientists working at universities and non-university research institutions may submit topic proposals to the Foundation at any time. If approved, the applicants then have the opportunity to select the participants of a Ladenburg Discourse and to act as scientific managers.
The outcome of a Ladenburg Discourse is open: It can end with a single meeting or lead to further meetings. A discourse often results in a publication or leads to project applications with other funding institutions. The Foundation assumes the organization of the meetings and finances the participants’ travel and accommodation expenses.
