Together with the Fellows of the Evolution Think Tank, the MGSE regularly organizes workshops on current issues and developments in evolutionary research. The workshops are open to PhD-students, postdocs, and senior researchers and bring together experts in the field from around the world to share the latest concepts and hypothesis.
The format usually includes keynote lectures by invited guests as well as roundtable and small-group discussions. The workshops are designed to foster collegial exchange, catalyse collaborations, and to stimulate interdisciplinary synergy.
