RG "Pro-Motion"

Creative competition started - Promotion rituals wanted!

How is the successful completion of a doctorate celebrated? The research group Pro-Motion is seeking known and unknown, existing and visionary rituals, which rightfully celebrate the completion of this phase on the academic career path. Online-submissions will be accepted until June 30th 2019. Accepted formats may be videos, pictures, texts, or other completely different representations. The three most creative contributions will be awarded 1,500 EUR each. Essential is the creativity of the submission, independent of the ritual itself.
