Joint New Zealand and Australia Meeting of Humboldt Fellows, Wellington November 2017

A short update on the biennial joint meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Associations of Alexander von Humboldt Fellows which will take place in Wellington in November 2017.

Here is the critical information.
Start: 3pm Friday, November 17, 2017
End: 2pm Sunday, November 19, 2017
Location of meeting: Royal Society of NZ Building, Wellington

In February 2017 we filed an application with the Humboldt Foundation, Bonn, to help cover some of the related costs. Listed in that application are details of approximately 80 Humboldtians from Australia and New Zealand who completed “Expression Of Interest” forms.  We expect to get initial feedback on the application in May 2017.

Registration for the meeting will open in July for a period of about two months. Registration is open to all Humboldtians, it is *not* limited to those who completed EOI forms. We are currently engaged in discussion with a few hotels in Wellington to make rooms available for participants. Details will be available on the conference website once registration opens.

We will update you once registration opens. We look forward to you joining us for what we hope will be an excellent meeting.
