SCIAS guests have access to a variety of cultural events and opportunities for academic exchange. To foster interaction among the guests and with JMU researchers, collective cooking and dining is possible and intended at the Welz-Haus. During the regularly held guest lectures, guests/fellows and JMU hosts/faculties have the opportunity to present their work to a selected audience. Depending on the interests of the fellows in residence, other suitable formats for academic dialogue are organised, e.g. interdisciplinary seminars, lecture series or small conferences.
The SCIAS fellowship experience is complemented by cultural activities taking place at the Welz-Haus, e.g. small in-house concerts, vernissages or SCIAS-Forums. To make the guests familiar with the city of Würzburg and its scenic surroundings, guests are provided with information on university events and the rich cultural life in the city of Würzburg.
