 Reporting on the Humboldt Club Meeting on 24 February 2022 & Outlook to next event


Dear Humboldtians,



On Thursday, 24 Feb. 2022 we had the first Humboldt Club meeting of this year, this time a virtual session. The format of the meeting introduced last June had been continued: Four Humboldt scholars, who recently arrived in RG Mitte-Nord, presented their latest research work and interests. The 10-minutes-presentations were followed by discussion rounds within the gathered group of 17 alumni and scholars. All presenters did a very good job in bringing down their work to a level suitable for non-experts, therefore nice discussions developed with the speakers and we all gained further insights. Presentations received can be downloaded with the link below.


Later the evening, an update on the recent activities for the DGH Annual Meeting 2022 in Goslar/Clausthal-Zellerfeld on 4/5 Nov. 2022 was given.


For the next Humboldt Club in Mitte-Nord Region a physical meeting is envisaged end of June / beginning of July, preferably on a Friday afternoon/evening or on a Saturday. Updates to follow in due time.



Best regards


Jürgen Vogel

Speaker Regional Group Mitte-Nord

Dear Humboldtians,


As discussed during our last meeting in June 2021, I suggest having a joint excursion to Magdeburg’s “Wasserstraßenkreuz” on  September 25th 2021 followed by an evening get-together in a restaurant in downtown Magdeburg.

The Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung offers to reimburse (final confirmation to follow) your trip to Magdeburg, the 4 h-long boat roundtrip (by “Weiße Flotte Magdeburg”, tour “Große Acht” to Wasserstraßenkreuz starting at 13:00 h  from Magdeburg Petriförder) and a contribution to the joint dinner in a restaurant in downtown Magdeburg.


More details to come in August.

Stay healthy and have a great summer vacation

The Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung is so kind and agreed to pay for the expenses related to the boat trip, i.e. the boat tickets including catering on board. If you like to join for a dinner right after the boat trip at own cost, please tick the appropriate box, too. 


The invitation email contains the link for free registration and more details on Logistics:




Please look for the coloured register button in the link, fill in your name, email details and answer some questions like the name of your institution, needed for my reimbursement of the tickets. One has to enter name and email twice, for the contact and for the ticket, sorry for that. After registration you will receive an automatic registration pop-up answer and a confirmation email (check your spam as well).

Currently, we have a quota of max. 24 places on the boat. There might be a chance to extend this number, if needed, no guarantee given.

Close friends and family of Humboldtians are welcome to join. Please register latest Wed., 8 Sept. 2021.
