The Gutenberg Academy's annual Networking Weekend takes place a few weeks after the new junior members have been admitted to the Academy. The Academyâs members spend the weekend together at an inn or guesthouse located in the surrounding area. During this event, the new junior members will be familiarized with the Academy and have the opportunity to present their dissertation topic to the other members. In addition to the scientific talks and presentations offered, the Networking Weekend gives the Academy's members the chance to get to know each other and to expand their personal network. The Academy's members are responsible for planning and organizing their Networking Weekend.
