Stammtisch Logo
The Stammtisch usually takes place at varying places in Berlin and is a great opportunity to get to know the city and its famous bars. For several months during Corona we had Stammtisch online on, while now we slowly return to in-person meetings. Due to ever-changing Corona rules, the precise modalities will be announced before each meeting.

The point of the writing group is to motivate each other to actually work on your dissertation. At the beginning of each meeting, we will announce what we want to do this time, and in the breaks, we will ask each other about the progress.
