Oberwolfach welcomes guests again

Since June 21st the first hybrid workshops are taking place at the MFO. The concept works fine and the feedback of organizers and participants is consistently positive. We are also pleased, that we could welcome our guests in the Research in Pairs program and the Oberwolfach Leibniz Fellows program. Furthermore, the MFO offers the possibility to apply for an Oberwolfach Research Fellowship. Our guests on site benefit from the many opportunities to work in small groups with sufficient safety distance, both inside and outside.

Measures concerning Coronavirus/Covid-19

The MFO is keeping a close eye on current developments and follows the instructions of the Federal State of Baden-Württemberg, the Federal Ministry of Health, the Robert Koch Institut (RKI) and the World Health Organization. New guidelines and recommendations may very quickly result in the adjustment of our measures. Please inform yourself regularly on our website.
