The 2023 Annual Meeting of the Humboldt Foundation in Berlin will be very special: With the biggest number of participants in the history of the event, we are celebrating the Foundation’s 70th anniversary! More than 700 researchers from over 80 countries, who are currently guests at German universities with sponsorship from the Humboldt Foundation, are expected to gather for the Annual Meeting being held in Berlin on 28 and 29 June.
The event will be opened by the President of the Humboldt Foundation, Robert Schlögl, and the President of Freie Universität Berlin, Günter Ziegler. The keynote address will be given by the behavioural ecologist and Humboldt Professor Margaret C. Crofoot, director at the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior and professor at the University of Konstanz. Margaret Crofoot studies how animal societies come about and function. Using observation, field-based experiments and the latest remote sensing technology, she studies how animals that live in groups resolve conflicts of interest in order to achieve shared goals. The subject of the keynote address: “The Science of the Sociome: Tracking how individual interactions combine to create complex societies.” Following her address, two Humboldtians from China and Kenya will report on their experiences during their research stays in Germany.
