    DIJ Forum

    Seit März 1997 lädt das DIJ unter dem Titel DIJ Forum zu öffentlichen Vorträgen ein, bei denen international renommierte Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler zu Themen von allgemeinem Interesse sprechen. Das DIJ Forum findet in der Regel einmal pro Monat statt und richtet sich an eine breite Öffentlichkeit.

    Die meisten DIJ Foren werden aufgezeichnet. Sie können sich die aufgezeichneten Vorträge nach der Veranstaltung entweder als Audiodatei auf unserer Podcast-Seite herunterladen oder das Video auf unserem YouTube-Kanal ansehen.
