LMU-ChAN Scientific Forum 2023

6 - 8 November 2023 at LMU Munich


The Scientific Forum is a central element of the LMU – China Academic Network. Aim of the interdisciplinary conference is to support scientists to initiate and extend existing contacts and interactions within the LMU-China Academic Network.

The intention of this event is to identify common research interests and lay the foundation for new joint research projects.

Theme of the LMU-ChAN Scientific Forum 2023: RE:search

It is finally time to RE:connect in person, RE:flect on transformations and new perspectives. How do we want to RE:start our cooperation? The LMU-ChAN Scientific Forum provides an opportunity to “RE:search”.

During the Scientific Forum in Munich researchers from LMU have the opportunity to work together with their colleagues from the ChAN partner universities in a broad variety of subject-specific formats, such as workshops, panel discussions, work meetings, visits of institutes, guest lectures etc. These individual formats are submitted in the call below by two principal investigators and include the proposal of further researchers planned to participate in these activities.

The activities of these subject-specific groups will be complemented by plenary keynotes and joint information sessions. Networking events offer excellent opportunities to meet colleagues and share experiences. The plenary activities will be conducted in English.
