Newsletter 2/2014

Dear readers,

Humboldt Life, the Humboldt Foundation’s new online network, is currently being launched. It is a meeting place exclusively for Humboldtians around the world, their hosts in Germany and their contacts at the Foundation. In this Newsletter, you can read about what our social network offers Humboldtians. Members of the Humboldt family can also access this information directly at www.humboldt-life.de. Be sure to register - we look forward to having you join us!

P.S. Since Humboldt Life is open exclusively to our immediate network, only Humboldtians and hosts have access. In the event that you are nonetheless curious about Humboldt Life, our short Infoclip can provide you an impression of our network.
