IfL Research Workshop

Concepts and methods in spatial research

The format IfL Forschungswerkstatt (IfL Research Workshop) offers a continuous forum for discussions on methodical, methodological and conceptual aspects. It is the proclaimed aim of the event series to further deepen the debates on these issues within the field of Geography and its neighbouring disciplines. The events are based on the active involvement of all participants. This regards a lively exchange on problems of research practice as well as experimenting with new methods in the field. To meet these ideas, Discussion Forums and ExperiSpaces were developed as the core elements of the yearly events.
