briq has initiated a visiting program in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas. We invite top-level researchers from the briq global network as briq Visiting Professors and briq Visiting Fellows with the intent of creating a European hub of resources and expertise. This involves both short and long-term visits, as well as participation in summer schools, workshops, and our regular research seminar. We aim to provide our visitors with a productive research environment in order to support and advance excellent research.
