Individualisation Symposium 2024

On 9 April 2024, the JICE, the collaborative research association InChangE and the CRC-TRR 212 jointly hosted the third interdisciplinary Individualisation Symposium at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research at Bielefeld University. At the public event, researchers from various disciplines of natural sciences, social sciences and humanities gave insights into their research on individualisation.

Participants had the opportunity to present and discuss their research or ideas for future projects on causes, mechanims and consequences of individualisation in a talk at the symposium.

Additionally, the JICE offered travel grants to attend the Individualisation Symposium 2024.

Additional information

The travel grant can be used to cover your costs for travel to and from Bielefeld and accommodation for the night before and after the Individualisaton Symposium, if travel is not easily feasible on the same day. The incurred costs need to be covered by the grant recipients in advance and will be reimbursed up to a maximum amount of 500 € after the travel has been completed.

Reimbursement is subject to local laws concerning travel costs for university members and guests (Landesreisekostengesetz). Therefore, we can reimburse incurred costs up to the amount necessary for train travel (2nd class) from your current place of residence to Bielefeld and back as well as accommodation of up to 80 €/night. If there is no accommodation available within this limit, you will have to submit documents supporting this (e.g. screenshots/offers) when submitting the invoice. Please note that we require invoices to reimburse you, i.e. private accommodation can usually not be covered.
