We will keep you updated about consequences of the coronavirus crisis for the Research Academy Leipzig here.

Based on the results of our flash survey, we have gathered a wide range of information, resources and tips to support you with your doctoral work during the time of the coronavirus pandemic.

Our events and workshops

Until further notice, we are cancelling all of our on-campus events and workshops. We will, however, be moving as many of our offerings as possible to online formats. Furthermore, the Villa Tillmanns will be closed during this period and is therefore not available for room reservations. All participants who signed up for any of our events and workshops will be informed via e-mail. Please see our website for further information.


The team at the Research Academy Leipzig can only be reached via telephone to a limited extent as we are partly working from home. Please send us an e-mail in urgent matters.
