The Physics Colloquium is aimed at people interested in current physics research – students, teachers and researchers.

Each Friday during the semester, renowned scientists provide insights into their research and discuss the methodology and findings with the public. Our speakers come from different countries and institutions. They conduct fundamental, application-oriented, and interdisciplinary research.

  • When: Fridays 3 - 5 pm, only during the lecture period
  • Where: Lecture hall A (room 1.3.14), Department of Physics, Arnimallee 14, 14195 Berlin
  • Language: mostly English
