Krüger-Colloquium

Banner der Krüger Stiftung

The Krüger-Colloquium is series of events of the Graduierten- und Forschungsakademie (GraFA) at the TU Freiberg. Renowned personalities in science, society and policy will be invited to give presentations about current topics and their work.

The selection of topics for the Krüger-Colloquia is based not only on the key arias of our university - geo, materials, energy and environment - but also on current economic and socio-political problems.

The Krüger-Colloquia are supported by the Dr.-Erich-Krüger-Foundation.

All people who are interested in participation are invited to discuss together with the guest speakers.
