Financial situation survey 2020

From 21.7. to 16.8.2020, we conducted an online survey about the financial situation of PhD students at HU Berlin. The results of the survey were also presented to the university administration which led to a presentation by the conflict counseling of the HGS at the PhD-Day as well as a brochure on financing and an upcoming corresponding workshop.
