General questions

What is the BHT - FREIBERGER UNIVERSITÄTSFORUM?

The BHT - FREIBERGER UNIVERSITÄTSFORUM is the main scientific event of Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg. BHT stands for "Berg- und Hüttenmännischer Tag". Its roots go back to 1947, and since 1949 it has established itself as an important forum for exchange between research, business and society.

Today, the event still attracts local and international guests every June and presents current developments and findings in the university's specialist fields (geo, materials, energy and environment). The name "BHT - FREIBERGER UNIVERSITÄTSFORUM", used since 2017, does justice to this cross-faculty orientation.

Will the BHT - FREIBERGER UNIVERSITÄTSFORUM 2022 take place as an in-person or virtual event?

If circumstances permit, both apply. Part of the programme is planned as in-person events, some completely virtually. Some colloquia will be offered in a hybrid format so that you have the option of attending either in person or virtually.

Please refer to the programme pages for information on the planned format of the colloquia.

Does participation in the event cost anything?

Yes, participation is normally subject to a fee. Individual programme items are offered free of charge. There are also discounts for certain groups. Please consult the programme booklet and the conference fee section for more information.
