Trip to Nuremberg on December 8

Dear PhD students, postdocs and partners,
in December, we would like to welcome you to join in our day-trip to the Bavarian city of Nuremberg (Nürnberg). In winter time, its main attraction is the well-known Christmas market, which is called the "Christkindlesmarkt". It is one of the largest in Germany, as it attracts more than 2 million visitors per year. At 12 am we will start a sightseeing-tour through the city center (1.5 hours) in order to get to know about Christmas traditions and regional food. In a traditional restaurant, we will then taste the typical local food (lunch is not included in the participation fee). We will conclude our stay in Nuremberg with enough free-time for experiencing the market and the city center on our own. We will be back in Halle at approximately 11 pm.
Meeting time: 6.30 am
Meeting point: Exit Ernst-Kamieth Straße, Main Train
Station (Hauptbahnhof) in Halle (Saale)

Participation fee: 20 € per person

Panel discussion on November 22

Dear PhD students!
"Resolve our status - ensure participation!"
The PhD student initiative, ProInit Halle, will be hosting a panel discussion following the above motto on

Thursday the 22nd of November, 5-8 pm at
Lecture Hall XIV a/b Löwengebäude / university main square Halle

PhD students at universities are a highly disparate group: some are employees of their institute, some receive scholarships, others are entirely free. They are a group without status, diverse yet without representation at the university. The law governing university education does not define the status of a PhD course nor its begin.
PhD students and representatives from the universities of Magdeburg, Jena, Leipzig, andHalle will discuss (pragmatic) solutions to this problem on the panel. We encourage PhD students of all faculties to join us and meet students of the different universities at the event.

Invited speakers are:

* Dr. Gunda Huskobla, Graduierten-Akademie Jena
* Dipl.-Biol. Alexander Schwarzkopf, Doktorandenrat Jena
* Barbara Witter, M.A., Graduate School Magdeburg
* Julia Gumula, M.A., Doktorandin Magdeburg
* Patrick Pfeil, M.A., ProRat Leipzig
* Dr. Dr. Klaus-Peter Meinicke, International Graduate Academy Halle
* Frank Ursin, M.A., Promovierenden-Initiative Halle

Host: Jens Gillessen, M.A. Halle

Following the panel discussion, snacks for an evening of networking will be served.
We are looking forward to seeing you.

Frank Ursin, M.A., speaker of the PhD initiative, ProInit Halle
